Booking notes

It is only necessary to book a single person for the guide, as the guide hire rate is the same regardless of whether guiding for one person or for a coach load of 40 persons. If you need two or more guides on two or more separate vehicles, first book one, then when on your "My booking" page add another guide service for the same day to your existing booking reference number.

Whether travelling alone (self drive) or in a group, interaction with a local guide is guaranteed to be a memorable event and to add value to your visit to the Kingdom. Even if you have a South African based guide or driver, the addition of a Swazi guide for a half or full day will be a great novelty.

Swazi Trails guides are polite, well spoken and trained to expose visitors to sights and experiences, which are otherwise off the beaten track. Guides are all English speaking.

Standard procedure sees guides dispatched to wait for the arriving group at the border post of entry to Swaziland, or scheduled to meet groups on their arrival at a local hotel. Guides are usually dressed in traditional attire and are happy to pose for photographs. Services include offering answers to difficult questions, assisting with translation at Swazi markets and roadside stops, highlighting local events when in progress and making suggestions to drivers on where to go to make the best use of available time.

Guides are also useful in solving problems and assisting where groups are split to do different activities. The added security of a local guide allows opportunities for greater exploration of off-the-beaten track attractions which otherwise would be missed.
