After 2 days of exploring the Mpumalanga area we headed south through Nelspruit and Barberton.







Before entering the remote Bulembu border crossing into Swaziland, we enjoyed a very picturesque dirt road that wound its way through mountains for more than 60 kms.







The border crossing was painless, the officer there was very friendly, gave us a map and offered us a handful of condoms for free (the Pope would not approve! )

The road through the forest after leaving the border station and heading towards Piggs Peak.









After getting back onto the tarmac, we traveled to Maguga Dam, where we stopped at a lodge for lunch, with a view overlooking the dam. Swaziland is absolutely beautiful and so are the people! We spent a wonderful evening at our hotel in Ezulweni.

We found the roads in Swaziland to be very good but be careful there is a lot of livestock on the road.
