Mlawula Nature Reserve

Mlawula is Swaziland’s finest lowveld reserve, it stretches up into the mountainous Lubombo region, accounting for its wide diversity of flora and fauna. This is the classic African landscape of flat topped trees and stretches of long waving grass. There are unique areas like the Androstachys forest and the cycad Encephalartos umbeluziensis which is found only in this 16 000 hectare reserve. There is a choice of two separate camping sites. Sifiso camp has an ablution block, running water and curious, though tame, ostriches. The camp is situated on the banks of a seasonal river, there are vast trees to sit under in dense green shade. There is also an attractive mountain top camp, Mapelepele. This has four large furnished tents on platforms, each with their own outdoor showers which are perched on the top of a cliff, giving excellent views whilst you bathe.
