Lubombo Mountains is along the eastern border, forming a natural barrier between Swaziland and Mozambique, is a line of rugged volcanic hills known as the Lubombos, which rise abruptly from the lowveld to some 600m.
This range extends far beyond Swaziland, following the Mozambique border north through the Kruger National Park and south into KwaZulu-Natal.
A new initiative has been set up in the Lubombo region, opening up a number of eco-walking trails.
The initiative has been set up by a collaboration of partners. These include Shewlua Mountain Camp, Mbuluzi Game Reserve, All Out Africa, and Mlawula Nature Reserve. This backing by major tourism initiatives will see these trails become a huge success. The eco trails are designed to benefit the communities, but there is little doubt in the the huge and rewarding experience visitors to the area and trails will receive.
