I am currently living and working in Swaziland with Doctors Without Borders (MSF), which means I have a limited budget to work with. A co-worker and I decided to extend ourselves over the Easter weekend. We shared a luxury tent (6), which was incredibly wonderful. The owner lived in the next building, and was very cordial and helpful. This place is beautiful and very relaxing. The landscape is amongst the best that I have seen not only in Swaziland, but anywhere! My only complaint is the food. Other than having to order dinner so far in advance, my fish was not fresh (and very dry and fishy tasting) and the next night I ordered a Swazi chicken dish that was overcooked. In the grand scheme of things, not such a bad thing, but for the price (did I mention that I am on a limited budget?), I would have really liked a better meal. On a positive note, the breakfast was fabulous. The service is great, everyone being so kind and considerate. I would return in the future. Oh, and I agree with the comments about the road. Thank goodness that I didn't drive it, but I felt bad for our taxi driver. It is a bit rough, and would be very difficult if it were raining very hard.
