“fun and other experiences”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

Mlilwane wildlife sanctuary- family fun for both the day visitors and the overnight ones. This reserve has a number of small game as well as a leopard on the premises and hippo and crocodile. informative centres are located around the park which disclose Swaziland's geography, flora and fauna, and offer information on animal spoor and history and bone structure. Cycling and walking trails are available as well as a charming picnic and braa area. There is a swimming pool for day visitors and the area is well kept.The infamous Execution Rock can be accessed via a hike from the main camp- it makes for a challenging walk and a good history lesson. animals roam freely in the camps but are not a threat to humans. The beehive huts are simply cute and clean. An enjoyable experience indeed and great weekend fun
