Dave, our guide, made the journey memorable with his friendly and entertaining nature. We embarked on our adventure from the Bulembu border, and it was a picturesque route that included some off-road trails and numerous photo stops. We arrived at the border slightly early and became the first to pass through both South Africa and Swaziland's borders that day. After clearing the border, he stopped at a local store to buy us delicious donuts and water, ensuring our energy levels were up for the day ahead. We visited the glass factory, Swazi cultural village, and a local restaurant where we savored authentic Swazi dishes. The journey continued with a stop at the Swazi candle center, and Dave drove around Lobamba town before heading back to South Africa via the Ngwenya border. Although we encountered a brief hailstorm on the way to Nelspruit, it added a touch of adventure to the trip. Overall, we had an entertaining journey filled with breathtaking sights, local flavors, and Dave's hospitality. I highly recommend this tour for anyone seeking an enriching Swaziland adventure.

Dave was a great driver but he also shared a lot of knowledge with us and a lot of jokes! Great trip! I highly recommend it!!
