Mantenga Nature Reserve offers a fun taste of Swazi nature and culture. This compact 725-hectare reserve is home to the Mantenga Cultural Village, a recreation of Swazi life in the 1850s.
Here, visitors can take guided tours to learn about Swazi culture and customs, participate in activities such as plaiting mountain grass and grinding grains, and watch impressive performances of traditional song and dance.
A highlight of the reserve is the stunning Mantenga Falls, Swaziland’s most famous falls with the biggest volume of water.
The reserve also protects wildlife such as baboons, vervet monkeys, bush babies, porcupine, rock hyraxes, serval, leopard, and various species of antelope, as well as an abundance of birds. Visitors can explore the reserve on foot, in their own vehicles, or on mountain bike.
