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.
Mlawula Nature Reserve has one major river, the Mbuluzi River, along its northern boundary, one permanent smaller river, the Mlawula River, which would be seasonal if not for the drainage from the sugar plantantions, and the rest of the rivers and streams with in the reserve are seasonal.
