Eswatini Cultural Village now open at Sibebe Resort
Once at the endpoint of the trail there are magnificent views open to the surrounding lowlands and parts of Mbabane can be viewed. On this trail there is a breathtaking cliff edge viewpoint where the face of the majestic Sibebe Rock can be observed clearly and is a 20 minute walk from the Resort.
Only 6 km from the resort are caves that have traces of human habitation such as rock barricades that were constructed to shield the inhabitants from the wind and wild animals. These caves are under very big rocks and there is an ecstatic thrill when entering into these caves.
There are beautiful waterfalls an hours walk away from the Resort. These waterfalls are formed along the faulted rocky granite bed of the Ntsantsamu River. The latter is perennial and is fed by water from the natural springs around the area. The 3 metre high waterfall has over the years created a very deep plunge pool which is a sight to see.
This is a short and easy walk about 30 minutes away from the Resort. The trail passes through shrub vegetation, scattered trees, pockets of thick bushes settlements and farms. The best season for this trail is between September and March which is the breeding season of most indigenous bird species.
Around the Resort we have one rock art site which is about 25 minutes away from the Resort. This is by far the most valuable piece of archaeological evidence of the existence of Bushmen around the area.
There are a series of hideout caves around the Sibebe area and one of these is about 25 minutes away from the Resort. The opening of this cave is not very pronounced and it can be mistaken for a single large rock. The entrance is about 1.2 metres and you will have to crawl in and as you enter the space opens up to a height of about 2 metres covering over 300 square metres.
This is a verandah shaped rock feature situated 30 minutes away from the Resort. It is one of the sites where archaeological excavations were made and where Stone Age tools were found. People in the nearby homes respect this area and it is used as a ritual site for both traditional and religious ceremonies.
Within the castle kopjes 30 minutes away from the Resort, are dense forests of native and rare species. While on this jungle walk in the pristine forest the path has to be negotiated with the dense undergrowth and climbers.
