Under the leadership of Sobhuza, the Swazi people retreated from Zulu attacks during the mfecane, or crushing, into the area of Swaziland about 1820.

European settlers entered the area during the 1880s and an Anglo-Boer convention of 1894 placed Swaziland under the administration of the Union of South Africa.

The nation attained full independence on September 6, 1968, with King Sobhuza II as head of state.


The capital of Eswatini sits on a high plateau, in the western part of the country, near the border with South Africa.

Mbabane grew up in the late 19th century near the residence of the Swazi king Mbandzeni, and developed as an administrative centre while Swaziland was a British dependency, between 1903 and 1968.

Around Swaziland

Lobamba is the royal capital and Manzini is the other main town; on the way to Maputo, in Mozambique.

Malolotja Nature Reserve

At 1829 m., Ngwenya Mountain is Eswatini's second highest. This 18,000 hectares park drops to 640 m. in the Nkomati River Valley, providing a diversity in flora and fauna.

Mantenga Cultural Village

This open air living museum is a faithful replica of a polygamous Swazi homestead of a century ago. The building materials are strictly traditional: poles, grass, reeds, leather strips, earth and dried cow-dung.
