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.

National Monuments

The ENTC is charged with protecting Eswatini's cultural heritage. This includes protecting sites of cultural or religious significance. Three sites are currently proclaimed National Monuments and twelve are in the process of being proclaimed.

Monuments are of vital importance in educating the public on Eswatini's rich heritage, and are a source of national pride.

Declared National Monuments

At present there are three national monuments which have been proclaimed under the ENTC Act:

Mantjolo Pool
  • A sacred pool outside Mbabane where the Mnisis clan may enter the spirit world. Known as Mantjolo Pool.
  • A tree under which King Bhunu was investigated by the Boer Government in the 19th century. Nkoseluhlaza Street, Manzini.
  • The site of Captain Gilson's house. The captain accompanied King Sobhuza to college in South Africa. Opposite SAWS in Mbabane.
