We will pick you up at 6:00 and head towards Swaziland through
Matola, Boane, and Finally Goba border.
From the Goba border we get into Swaziland and through Siteki we head down
towards Manzini Town.
Swaziland currently known as Eswatini is a small country but very rich in terms of
cultural immersion. We shall go through Siteki as head to Manzini town which i sone of
the cultural towns of Eswatini.
Manzini was formerly known as Bremersdrop until 1960. Manzini it´s the largest commercial town
but the capital is Mbabane, close to South African border, focused on business but not as commercial as Manzini.
Around 10;00 am we expect to arrive to the most famous handicraft market in Eswatini, where you will have time to explore how hands and imagination of these friendly people work.
Then, we will continue our day to Mantenga Cultural Village, where a couple of surprises are waiting for you. One is related to culture and traditions, and the other one related to water. 🙂
You will probably feel starving after the visit, so let’s have a break at Happy Valley, and specifically at House on Fire, a charming place, with good vibes, stunning architecture (it reminds Gaudi from Spain) and, of course, good food. Shall we have lunch here?
We are sure you will ask to stay longer there, lay on the grass, relax the mind, but laziness is not part of the experience, so after exploring well this magic house, we will go for our last stop at Swazi Candles, an icon of this country where workers are amazing creating rhinos, elephants and any shape you demand. It’s easy to fall in love with all their creations.
From there, we will start our trip back to Mozambique enjoying the last views of the country, its inhabitants, its “everywhere-cows”, the sugarcane crops…
It’s expected to arrive back to Maputo around 7 p.m. after a long intense day.
