Owner description: Swazi village visits are offering a unique experience for travelers who want to meet the local people in a non touristic environment. We have our home set up in the village of kaPhunga about 55kms away from Manzini town. Here you will have the feeling of living in the village and also with out being an intruder and the people are very friendly as you walk in the village people would be happy to say Sawbona (hello). You can go for Swazi home visit, and see the set up of the Swazi family and make use of your basic siSwati language which your guide would have taught you on the way. You can also visit the local primary school and meet the kids depending if they are busy, usually you will have a chance to tell them where you come from and share what ever information about your country of which they are always very eager to learn and also teach you more about our country Swaziland. An overnight stay is well recommended since you can taste the Swazi traditional food in the evening, sit by the fire and tell some Swazi stories and or some ghosts stories. This offers a wonderful stay in Swaziland and you make friends for life both young and old.

“Unique Local Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

My husband and I visited Swazi as a two day extension of our SA adventure and were so thrilled that we decided to do do this and that we picked Myxo to be our guide. We met Myxo in Manzini with no trouble, spent some time together in town and at the market before heading with him to the village of Matjana to meet the local people, learn more about the culture and breathe the amazing fresh air. It was such a refreshing day - we visited schools, we had dinner with the neighbors, we hiked to take in the incredible views and landscape, we slept in a traditional beehive hut and we did all that with Myxo who felt more like an old friend than a hired guide. From Manzini it was a very easy drive in our rental car to Kruger NP (we had NO problems taking SA rental car into and out of Swazi). I highly recommend making a stop in Swazi part of your itinerary and based on our experience, I know Myxo will work to customize an itinerary based specifically on what you're looking to do and learn.

Its always great to hear that our guests are happy- in fact after they have gone we feel like we have just said goodbye to a friend. Showing you our home/ village was a pleasure. And we hope that you are now back home safe and planning another trip. inshalla.

“Highly recommended tour!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

My boyfriend and I did the one day cultural tour in December 2012 and we had a wonderful time! Myxo is an amazing guide and he can learn you everything you want to know about Swaziland and its unique culture. The little traditional village he created is just perfect : it feels like home even it's just for the day or for a few nights. During the tour, you can really see and feel how the villagers live their everyday life and dont be afraid of the walk up... The view is breathtaking!

Good to find out that you had great time with BoBo in the village and i was not around and i was a little worried about that, however it turns out that BoBo was even better than me(Myxo). Happy to know that you go to have better insight about the Swazi people. When ever you are in the area please look us up and stop by for sure/ or just drop us a line
