Voice of Travelers to Swaziland

Cheap ticket and great experience in Swaziland

I booked an air ticket to Swaziland from South Africa. I enjoyed the first-class service since I purchased a first-class ticket. In Swaziland, I have visited a number of attractions and booked a ticket as part of a group from a local ticket agency. Swaziland has a number of tourist attraction and I loved visiting Hlane National Park. This is where I saw the largest herd of animals. It national park is absolutely flat and when traveling by road, the views are spectacular. I got to see many animals such as lions, elephants, hippos, white rhinos, leopards and giraffes. The accommodation in the national park is also affordable and comfortable for visitors who have booked tickets to Swaziland.

Swaziland was safe and I had an amazing time

This was the first time that I booked a ticket to Africa. I first bought a ticket to fly to South Africa. From South Africa, I purchased a ticket for Swaziland. Swaziland is a small country and it is very beautiful. When I first arrived, I was a little unsure if it was safe to travel within Swaziland, however, I soon realised this was no problem. I booked a group tour ticket and we had a lot of fun travelling. I also felt very safe driving in Swaziland. The population in Swaziland is very low and the homes of local people are spread apart. The locals in Swaziland are very respectful and courteous. In Swaziland, there are a number of beautiful national parks to visit. Tickets were very cheap and I could book most tickets online. I will surely return to Swaziland to explore the country more.
