Best time to visit
The best time to visit Eswatini may be during the cooler dry season in the winter months (from mid-April to mid-October). The average temperature is 20°C this time of year, even though it depends on the altitude. From mid-October until mid-April there is the hot wet summertime, which tends to be quite rainy. If you wish to attend some of the country’s most popular festivals and events, like Umhlanga and Incwala, make sure to visit in August/September or December/January.
Population growth in Eswatini and the increased demand for fuel is causing deforestation, which has contributed to severe soil erosion and degradation (also caused by overgrazing), as well as biodiversity loss. Another significant environmental problem in Eswatini is pollution of soil, air, and water. Industrial water pollution, agricultural water pollution, and untreated sewage are contributing to the spread of life-threatening diseases. Only 44% of the population has access to potable water and the frequent droughts caused by global warming are deteriorating the situation.
Romance and adventure
Eswatini may be a small country, but it is wonderfully diverse. You can hike the spectacular mountains, explore the national parks and game reserves, or soak up the lively culture and thus easily find your share of romance and adventure.
