Eswatini has incredible diverse landscapes, topography, geology, micro-climates and ecological zones ranging from mountainous highveld grasslands to lowveld African bush. The northern highveld is dominated by the Makhonjwa Mountain Range which are some of the oldest mountains in the world. The most beautiful views of these mountains can be seen from Malolotja Nature Reserve which is one of the very best highland reserves in southern Africa.
A short distance to the south is the Sibebe Mountain Range which is a large three-billion-year-old granite monolith covering some 16,500ha and home of the amazing Sibebe Rock.
Across central Eswatini to the east of the country is the Lubombo plateau, a biodiversity hotspot renowned for its profusion of tree and bird species.
Sibebe Rock is just north of Mbabane, the capital city of Eswatini. The best way to really appreciate Sibebe is to climb it from the base to the top. There are no marked trails but Vaya Trails can take you on a beautiful route up the mountain by traversing on both rock and grassy paths. At the top we explore tunnels and caves, and see the amazing views of Sibebe, before looping back down the mountain.
