"Mbabane - The capital of Swaziland" Mbabane by tpk2

Mbabane Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 18 photos

For a nation's capital Mbabane is small, just 70,000 inhabitans. However, it is the largest town in Swaziland. During the Boer administration was at Manzini. Mbabne was made capital in 1902, after the British won the Boer War.

The town is is set on a beatiful location in the Highveld of western part of the country, at an altitude of 1,200 metres.

Mbabane doesn't have that many tourist attractions and visit there is mostly for dropping by in the shops, post office or bank. Most travelers head to Ezulwini valley where most game reserves, activities, museums, and culture are to be found.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:You might just be the only traveler in the town!
  • Cons:Not that many things to see.
