There are few places in Africa where you can cycle past herds of game on the seat of a bicycle.  Enjoy a half-day excursion to Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary and get eye-to-eye with zebra, wildebeest, warthog, kudu, nyala, waterbuck, blesbok, impala, hippopotamus and crocodile.  Under the careful guidance of a Swazi guide, follow tracks and trails through the gentle hills and valleys of this scenic area.  Ideal for photography & bird watching - this is an African safari with a healthy difference.
