Swaziland's oldest protected area, the Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary is also its most-visited wildlife reserve. Located in the gorgeous Ezulwini Valley ('the Valley of Heaven') - between the thriving tourist centres of Ezulwini and Malkerns - the Mlilwana Wildlife Sanctuary is a great bet for tourists to Swaziland looking to experience some of the country's significant natural bounty.
Covering an area of 4,560 hectares, Mlilwane features open savannah grasslands abundantly filled with game and wildlife, the plains stretching out to the granite peak of Nyonyane Mountain ('the Rock of Execution') in the distance. Visitors to Mlilwane can explore the beautiful reserve on foot, on a game drive, by mountain bike or even by horseback - and for those who just wish to relax and soak up the tranquillity, the comfortable lodgings and excellent amenities at the main camp site provide ample opportunity to do just that.
