Swaziland is a small landlocked country of 17 363 Km²/10 788 m² surrounded by South Africa on three sides and on the east Moçambique. This small kingdom gained independence from the Commonwealth in 1968 under the leadership of King Sohbhuza II who was king of the Swazi’s from 1921-1982.
The current king Mswati III was enthroned in April 1986 after being recalled from school in England due to the death of his father. He has managed to merge traditionalism into a modern society, making this country well worth visiting for a cultural and wildlife experience.
In this small economy, subsistence agriculture occupies more than 60% of the population. Exports of soft drink concentrate, sugar and wood pulp are the main earners of hard currency.
Swaziland is heavily dependent on South Africa from which it receives nearly 90% of its imports and to which it sends more than half of its exports. Remittances from Swazi workers in South African mines supplement domestically earned income by as much as 20%.
Hotels, lodges and restaurants in Swaziland cater for all tourists and travellers. Local cuisine is available at the cultural tribal villages where it is possible to taste ethnic food and drink.
Swaziland has a subtropical climate in the eastern low lying areas and a temperate climate in the forested mountainous highlands.
Accommodation ranges from safari/game lodges, country retreats/inns to five star hotels with casinos and elaborate golf courses.
