We camped overnight and did the waterval hike. The campsite is perfect: hot water, clean bathrooms, impeccable campsites. Road noise is a bit obvious though. The hike is not well marked, make sure you know which foot path to take

Great spot for hiking, Malolotja is known for its scienery, dont expect to see lots of animals. Its more for the person who wants to hike and do some canopy tree trips.

An amazing hidden gem of nature in the North of Swaziland. Animals ranging from zebra to warthogs to various species of frogs. Great for the ones who love a good hike and also ideal for a camping at their HQ campsite for a few nights....More

They have good equipment, optimised procedure and professional guides which make us feel safe. Make sure don't wear slippers and take care of your camera or mobile. You'll never get it back if you drop it.
