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.
