Food

South African Cuisine has many influences from Europe and Asia dating back to its colonialism times.  You will most likely find that their meat is some of the best you have possibly ever tasted, as well, as finding some very different meats such as Ostrich and Kudu.  Something to definitely try on your trip is Biltong, simply put Dried meat.  Which has been marinated for a  lengthy period of time, then spiced and hung up to dry, you may actually think this sounds horrible, but believe me it is extremely tasty!  On your travels we also suggest trying not only some of the best restaurants in Johannesburg and Cape Town, but also some street food and local delacacies.

Take in the rural beauty and the Swazi culture with a trip to Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary, located in Swaziland.  The Ezulwini Valley also known as Valley of Heaven is where you will find the gem that is Mlilwane, Swaziland’s oldest protected area.

The Sanctuary was originally a 450-hectare family farm which was turned into a sanctuary after witnessing the decline of the area’s wildlife by Ted and Liz Reilly.  The Reilly’s planted indigenous trees created a wetland and restocked the area with wildlife.  Mlilwane Sanctuary is now under a non-profit Trust after being donated by the Reilly family and has seen significant growth in its original size due to the endless support by International travellers and donations.

Mlilwane Beehive Village is within the nature reserve and offers traditional Swazi experiences.  Stay in a grass dome-shaped hut that has been built with traditional Swazi reed fencing.  Bear in mind, this accommodation style is not luxurious, but definitely comfortable with en-suite bathrooms!

Spanning over 4,500 hectares there is an array of activities for you to participate in, and here are a few of our favourites:

  • Mountain Biking – you can hire by the hour, and are welcome to either do your own self-guided or guided tours. Whether you are an avid cyclist or looking to explore the sanctuary on the bike, there are a variety of trails to suit your activity level.
  • Horse Riding – the Chubeka Trails (northern section) is the main area you will explore while on horseback. The sanctuary has a variety of horse to suit your skill set (riding skills).
  • Self-Guided Walking Trails – with 9 interlocked trails covering over 20 km, and vary in length and difficulty.
