Melusi's Guest House is Located about 1.5km from the Town of Manzini in the Kingdom of Swaziland.
This town could have been a capital but its not- well it has a very lively atmosphere and the people are very friendly. This is an industrial town its full of life too, you see a guy in his suite heading for the office and on one hand you will see the young man carrying 15 boxes over his head marching towards the market.
We have a very good market in Manzini (5 min walk from the guest house and 2 min drive) if you are looking into buying some gifts for the family and friends, this market is cheaper, not only do the tourists come but even the local people they come and buy lots of goods and go sell in South Africa.
The market is open 6 days a week from 5 in the morning till late in the evening. Thursdays at the end of the month are very busy and also Saturdays.
You have also the Only Baobab in Swaziland growing in Manzini not too far from Moneni Guest House if you have never seen it before its a must see. - this is a mystery since these are Indigenous trees from Zimbabwe and the coast of Mozambique.
Also the airport is around 17 km away from Manzini and all the other attractions such the following -Hlane national park, Mkhaya Nature reserve are 1 hour from the guest house.
The main bus station is about 5 minutes driving, the buses going to South Africa and Mozambique are easy to find.
