Elephant on safari in Eswatini.In the vast bushveld of eastern Eswatini where the hot, still sun of Africa beats on the dry but life-giving soils lies Swaziland’s largest protected area, Hlane Royal National Park. Hlane is home to the largest herds of game in the Kingdom and at night go to sleep listening to the distant roar of lion.
