Mbabane is the capital of Swaziland.

Get in[edit]

The nearest airport is Manzini International. It is probably the only one in the country. South African Airways connects Manzini to Johannesburg. You can easily travel to Mbabane from South Africa and Mozambique. Several mini-buses travel between Maputo and Manzini/Mbabane. Regular bus service is provided between Johannesburg and Durban. There are two shuttle services that operate routes between Johannesburg and Mbabane -- TransMagnific (http://www.goswaziland.co.sz/) and Veronica's. If you drive your own car you will find good tarred roads and several petrol stations/shops on the main roads.

The town itself offers not that much. There are no big attractions. The city centre consist of two small malls, a taxi and bus range, a hotel and at some days open markets.

Do[edit][add listing]

There is a Swazi cultural village close by and a game reserve. There are several factories around Mbabane which sell traditional hand-made Swazi candles. There are lots of hiking trails among the surrounding mountains. One popular route is to hike up Sibebe, which has its start in Pine Valley.
