Swazi­land is only a road trip away from South Africa

Observer on Saturday - - News -

Only a four-hour drive away from Jo­han­nes­burg, Swazi­land is the per­fect ad­di­tion to your itin­er­ary when vis­it­ing its big­ger sis­ter. 48 hours is a great amount of time in Swazi­land, although you may want to stay longer.

There are two shut­tle ser­vices op­er­at­ing be­tween Joburg and Swazi­land, and are very rea­son­able. Siyeswa­tini Trans­mag­nific and Sky­world both de­part from Sand­ton or O.R. Tambo air­port and cost 600 South African rand for a one-way ticket.

To make Swazi­land even more ap­peal­ing (is that even pos­si­ble at this point?!), the rand is widely ac­cepted. That means you don’t even have to change your cur­rency when adding Swazi­land to your itin­er­ary!

How­ever, if you do with­draw money in Swazi­land, you might re­ceive the Swazi lilan­geni. Don’t worry, the lilan­geni is equal to the rand so they have the same value. Make sure to con­vert any lila­geni to rand be­fore you de­part though, as it will be hard to ex­change the cur­rency out­side of Swazi bor­ders.

Swazi­land has been the high­light of my trav­els this year, and I hope you are in­ter­ested in vis­it­ing this won­der­ful coun­try. But don’t be­lieve ev­ery­thing I’ve writ­ten… go and see it for your­self!
