I wasn't sure what whether to visit the Cultural Village due to the fact that it can be very touristy, however we enjoyed the visit very much. Firstly, we walked to the waterfall view point (the one where you can see it from the top),it...More

Out of a quite limited choice of the tourist attractions in the country, I consider this one as the best. One could see very nice dancing show and the tour over the antient village with a highly proffessional guide provides vistors with a good perception...More

If you're in Swaziland then this is the perfect place to experience Swazi culture. The cultural dance is something special followed by an informative tour of the village and some interesting facts about the traditional cultures of the Swazi people.

A village display with huts, dancing, music and a very good explanation by a guide. Never expected such a complicated social structure. Beautiful surroundings too, easily to reach. Mantenga Lodge is nearby.

We travelled through Swaziland on our way south from Kruger. Usually, we try to avoid commercial “local experiences”. Although this is not a live village, we think it was an excellent experience for several reasons: We arrived on a Saturday, at about 10:15 and first...More
