The Kingdom of Eswatini

The MR9 highway from Manzini to Nhlangano winds south alongside the Mkondvo River before climbing dramatically onto the exposed plateau of the highveld. Much of this route is known as the Grand Valley. It is a glorious drive, with stunning scenery and picturesque rural communities on either side. As the road winds up the escarpment, it offers stupendous views in both directions. Up on the plateau the bush gives way to undulating grasslands. Here you will find Nhlangano, amid its apron of forestry.
