South Africa and Swaziland (eSwatini) (August 2019)

Hi again,

Next step in our trip was Hlane National Park in eSwatini (before known as Swaziland). In the following link you will find all information:

11. Hlane National Park (eSwatini).

To arrive to the famous Kruger National Park from iSimangaliso it is necessary to cross Swaziland (now eSwatini). As the trip was quite long, we decided to spend a couple of nights in the middle, specifically in the Hlane National Park in Swaziland. Previously this area was a rich royal hunting ground, although it is currently protected as a national park. It was declared in 1967, under the reign of King Sobhuza II of Swaziland, and is managed by Big Game Parks, a private agency. This park of 22,000 ha still houses a rich fauna, with species such as the lion, the savanna elephant, various species of vulture or the marabou. Hlane includes areas in which it is possible to drive by yourself, and others in which access is limited, being only possible to enter with guided tours. The area where the lions are is precisely one of them. Below you can find some pictures. If you want to see more, please click in the link above.
