From championship golf courses, to fishing in the dams
Sports such as squash, tennis, swimming are available in Eswatini (Swaziland) at hotels and lodges as well as the Country Clubs on the Sugar Estates. Football is played throughout the country and international matches are held at the Somhlolo National Stadium in Lobamba. Rugby is less widely played but growing in popularity thanks largely to a charity, SKRUM, that uses the game help educate and develop the country’s youth.
Royal Swazi Spa in the Ezulwini Valley and Nkonyeni Golf Estate to the south are home to the country’s best golf courses, both with 18 hole championship courses and scenic views for the golfer to take in as they travel the course. Fishing is also available at a number of dams and rivers around the country, with trout, tiger fish and a number of native species to be found.
Eswatini offers a wealth of outdoor activities from hiking to horse riding, cycling to white water rafting. More information on those can be found on the Adventure page. For those interested in competitive events, Eswatini has an annual series of Mountain Bike Races.
