Conserving Eswatini's Natural and Cultural Heritage
Eswatini National Trust Commission

Our logo is adapted from a painting by Phillip Dlamini, 1998, of a purple crested turaco. In traditional Swazi dress, the red feathers feature in the royal headdress, so this bird illustration is not only a symbol for wildlife conservation, but also of cultural heritage.

Mlawula Accommodation - Magadzavane Lodge

Magadzavane Lodge was officially opened by His Majesty King Mswati 111 in March 8th 2012 and it is located in a natural bush veld environment in Mlawula Nature Reserve. It is situated near Siteki town (Swaziland lubombo region) and 12km from Mhlumeni border that leads to Maputo (Mozambique) which has a 24hr border and makes it ideal for guests that want to drive to Mozambique and experience a different vibe and not have to worry about border closing times.
