This is part 2 of your introduction to the Kingdom of Swaziland. Where people greet you on the street: “Welcome! Relax. No hurry in Swaziland!”. We were just passing through but during a Village Tour we actually learned so much about the history, cultural traditions, and the polygamous King that spending more days could easily be justified…

Part 1 of this post showed you the first stops of our Swazi Village tour, where we visited the Swaziland National Museum and the King Sobhuza II Memorial Park. Part 1 also talked about the situation in Swaziland and why we think the country is worth an extended visit. If you have not yet read part 1, click on this link. It will help you to better understand the continuation of our travel story.

So here it goes: part 2 of our Swaziland adventures!
