This is Swaziland’s spiritual and cultural heart. This laid-back town is home to Swaziland’s monarchy as well as its most important buildings.

Here, visitors will find the Lobamba Royal Village with the Royal Kraal, the Parliament Building, the National Museum, and other government buildings. In the large Embo State Palace, the king holds audiences and the magnificent State House, built in 1978, and is used mainly for ceremonial and other state occasions, though neither of these buildings is open to the public.

However, visitors can tour the Parliament Building. Also in Lobamba, the Somhlolo Stadium is the venue of major cultural and sporting events, state celebrations, concerts, dance performances, and speeches by the king.
