We can also combine it with the Cultural village where we will have a tour, with the guide explaining the Swazi culture and Swazi family set up.
See the Swazi traditional dance performed by both males and females- you can join them at the end of the performance and have fun.
If we still have the time we will visit the Ezulwini market stalls and do more shopping, looking around and meeting Swazi people.
Visit the cultural village, a living museum of old traditions that represents a classical Swazi lifestyle during the 1850's. The building material is strictly traditional: poles, grass, reeds, leather strips, earth and dried cow dung.
The Mantenga Cultural Village is a mini complex of sixteen huts, each with its own specific purpose, kraals and byres for cattle and goats, reed fences that serve as windbreaks, and various other structures. With the traditional artifacts on display, the village illustrates many facets of the ancient Swazi way of life: social, economic and religious.
The objective of the cultural village is to enable visitors from all over the world as well as Swazis from all corners of the country to visit it and to maintain a positive interest in the Swazi cultural heritage, including language, customs and practices, rituals, dance, music, folklore, arts and crafts.
After the official opening, it was named "Ligugu Lemaswati" by his Majesty King Mswati III, meaning "The pride of the Swazi People".
On entry, the village people, often wearing traditional clothing, will warmly welcome you. The standard Swazi greeting to the family is "Yebo Nkosi".
The village life is vibrant and energetic and your guide will not only talk you through how the huts and traditional items are made but might also teach you the siSwati words for them. Interaction is encouraged, so try your hand at grinding maize and plaiting mountain grass or join in the Swazi song and dance. An offering of a taste of local food and sometimes brew is made but forget about your cutlery and try it the Swazi way… with your hands! This experience is both informative and memorable - a taste of true Swazi hospitality - and should not be missed.
Ezulwin Valley- Visit the road side market and do your last shopping before we start heading to Mbabane the capital city.
Here you will have at least 30 mins while you walk around and discover the town. Head over to the Ngwenya Glass which is not too far from the SA border. Here you will see all the amazing things made from recycled bottles.
We will then be on our way to the north of Swaziland towards the town of Piggs Peak, stopping now and then on the side of the road, admiring the art work by the artists using soap stone.
We will then cross the Matsamo border in the late afternoon and head straight to the Funky Monkeys Backpackers for the night, prior to our 3 days animal Safari.
Your accommodation will be offered here in double rooms not in the dorms.
