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.

Backpacking

Trail preparation: The weather is extremely variable, so it is advisable to always carry clothes and sleeping gear for cold weather. Waterproof tents should be used. This is mountainous country and the backpacking is hard. Make sure that you undertake a trail you are capable of completing. Do not attempt any mountain climbing if you do not have the equipment.

Suggested 2 to 7 day trails
