Mbabane

3.4
Although attractions in Mbabane itself remain scarce, this capital of the Kingdom of Swaziland provides a picturesque setting, pleasant weather, and plenty of amenities for tourists exploring the nation's mountains, forests, and valleys. Nestled in the rugged hills of the Mdzimba mountain range and boasting sweeping views of the verdant countryside, Mbabane owes its cool climate to its location on the Highveld plateau. Exploring wildlife reserves, traditional Swazi villages, and hiking in the mountains rank highly on most Mbabane itineraries. Mbabane is in Hhohho District. With our custom trip planner, Eswatini (Swaziland) vacations can be built around trips to Mbabane and other destinations in Eswatini (Swaziland).
