So small that you can drive from one side to the other in under three hours, Swaziland is one of several African nations that describe themselves as a continent in miniature. Its scenery is certainly highly varied, with mountains, gorges and waterfalls in the west, excellent for horse-riding and hiking, and floodplains and savanna in the east, ideal for game drives and bush walks. The forests range from umbrella thorns and sausage trees to conifer woods and its reserves are home to lions, elephants, rhinos and zebras. . .
