The Kingdom of Swaziland was overshadowed by its southern neighbour, the Kingdom and its capital, Mbabane. Officially renamed E-Swaziland in 2018, this landlocked southern African nation once earned the nickname "Switzerland of Africa." Today it serves as a trading center for the surrounding region, sugar exports and tourism flourish throughout the country. ESwatine is a country that not many people have heard of, but when you learn that it is officially called "Swaziland," it rings the bell.
Attentive bird watchers come from all over the world to see the endangered blue tern that can be found in Malolotja. Although it doesn't have as many attractions as its southern neighbor, the majority of the attractions are close by.
The Sun International Casino is located in Mbabane, but you can also visit it at the Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary by taking a guided tour.

So if you are going to Swaziland, I recommend you take a morning walk in Mbabane. Be sure to visit the art gallery of the Indingilizi Gallery in Mb Abane, which exhibits some of the best African art and crafts, while showcasing the works of the most important contemporary artists in Swziland. Next to the Swazi National Museum is the tomb of beloved King Sobhuza, who became the first king of his country to lead Swaziland to independence in 1968.
Mbabane became the capital of Swaziland after the South African War, also known as the Boer War. The name of the town comes from the name of the African chief Mbabanes Kunene, who lived in the area when the British settlers arrived. The early town of Mbabsane consisted of several schools, churches and shops founded by European settlers. It owes its name to a chief, Mb abane Kunenes, who had lived in the area since her arrival at the end of the 19th century, and to the city itself.
When we came to tell you about this wonderful place, the capital, we knew that there would most likely be nothing to hold our attention to. We did not expect much and were therefore not surprised when we stepped out of our guest house and were greeted with a breathtaking view of the mountains.
You can observe wild animals such as elephants, lions, rhinos, giraffes, leopards, zebras, hippos, elephants and many more. Swaziland has the highest number of people who have been struck by lightning, and several of the locals we spoke to knew someone who had been struck by lightning. This fact fascinated us the most, because Swatini has a very high lightning strike rate per 100,000 inhabitants per year. This way you can see the effects of lightning on people, animals, plants, trees and even buildings. Although we had no shelter, we used our shelter as best we could due to the extreme weather conditions and lack of electricity.
