Tour Overview

Sense Africa provides this small group, off the beaten track guided tour to Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) regularly throughout the year. Eswatini was awarded one of the top 10 destinations for 2020 by Lonely Planet Best in Travel 2020. The Kingdom of Eswatini has eluded mass tourism and its discreet and untouched attractions are truly delightful. It is the ideal destination for first time visitors to Africa, for up close and personal wildlife experiences and to see genuine Africa. Eswatini is unique in the fact that there are lots of places where you can walk unaccompanied in reserves – where there is no big game! This is an opportunity to have your own mini adventure visiting charming and intimate reserves set away from the mass hubbub of tourism. Travelling distances are short so there is more time relaxing by water holes, spending time with the local people and exploring the stunning scenery.
