Climbing & Abseiling
Eswatini’s highlands, mountains and gorges offer opportunities to both climb and descend a number of rock faces. Most popular sights include Sibebe Rock, north of Mbabane, where the three-billion-year-old volcanic slab offers a challenge to climb the ‘face’ of Sibebe Rock. A daunting prospect to even pro climbers. Alternative easier routes are available, with the possibility of a simple hike too. Execution Rock, a dramatic peak that was once the location of public executions in past times, is a popular attraction. It’s rocky surroundings is a great area for climbing, and the latest trend, bouldering.
Abseiling, although less popular, is offering by Swazi Trails, a local tour operator that specialises in adventure and adrenaline fuelled activities in Eswatini.
Although not strictly climbing or abseiling, the zip-lining Malolotja Canopy Tour may be of interest for those that like being attached to a rope!
