Swaziland has much to offer travelers, although it's not always easy to find accommodation facilities in parts of the country.

That aside, Swaziland is rightly famous for its stunning scenery and well-run wildlife parks and reserves.

Hlane National Park is home to antelopes, lions, elephants, white rhinos, leopards, giraffes, hippos and a wide range of smaller species. Bird life is abundant and includes the highest density of nesting white backed vultures in Africa.

Mlawula Nature Reserve is adjacent to Hlane Royal National Park. It's known for the incredible variety of birds, with over 350 species in residence.

Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary is not to be missed as photo safaris into its game-filled plains are thrilling.
