It’s a nice cool day. There’s a breeze that occasionally sweeps across your face and then disappears behind the trees. The Sun is out, but not in the high intensity that can be expected with the summer, but rather, a soft warmth that gracefully reminds you that the long and dreary winter is finally over. Gloriously even, because it’s quite hard to find the inspiration to leave your snuggly hotel room and brave the cold even when the adventurer in you is begging to. With Spring being in her highest element and the weather finding balance between rainy nights and warm days, now is the perfect time to explore all that there is to see and do outdoors. If you cannot imagine anything that would get your heart pumping in exhilarating excitement than swinging off tree tops or having white foamy waters wet your hair, then you’ve clicked onto the right blog. Here’s a look at three of the best places to unleash your inner adrenaline junkie in Eswatini. Oh and don’t worry, on behalf of your next trip, you’re welcome.
Malolotja Treetop canopy
Dubbed as a once in a lifetime experience, the Malolotja canopy tour offers a monkey meets bird’s eye view of one of the most spectaculars stretches of forest in all of the Kingdom. Situated deep within the pristine reserve of the same name, the tour glides through captivating scenery, towering boulders and over a lush forest canopy that stands beautifully against a backdrop of rugged cliffs. Imagine the scene below, of herds of Impala and other stunning game roaming by while you zip through. Cruise past birdlife and catch imagery of wildflowers in bloom. Sounds like an adventure? We believe so too.
