Conserving Eswatini's Natural and Cultural Heritage

Our logo is adapted from a painting by Phillip Dlamini, 1998, of a purple crested turaco. In traditional Swazi dress, the red feathers feature in the royal headdress, so this bird illustration is not only a symbol for wildlife conservation, but also of cultural heritage.

Eswatini National Museum: Natural History Wing

Natural History Wing

The Natural History Wing was built in 1991, with the following objectives:

  • To educate the public about the diverse ecosystems of Eswatini.
  • To illustrate by example how Swazi Culture is influenced by nature.
  • To highlight the importance of environmental issues.
Highveld diorama

The displays include dioramas showing typical highveld and lowveld scenes. One of the displays features nocturnal animals, which, although they may be common, are often seldom seen.

Nocturnal diorama

The Mantenga Falls diorama features aquatic species. There are also displays showing Swazi cultural ceremonies and attire, herbs with traditional medicinal usage, and other cultural uses of Eswatini's plants and animals.
