A while back I was fortunate to visit Swaziland, a tiny country with a big heart and warm, friendly people. It is so close for South Africans to visit – a mere three and a half hours from Johannesburg or four hours from Durban. It is a spectacular country with lots of culture, adventure and wildlife. But best of all its extremely affordable. See my adventure in pictures below.
