Title: Weather in Bulembu and Mlilwane Swaziland in October?
Post by: Roadhawg on October 22, 2018, 07:39:09 am
Going to Swaziland for the first time with a group of guys end of the week.   We're going in at Bulembu for a night, and then riding down to Mlilwane area.   I think the riding will be fairly easy, a lot of the guys are on triumph bonneville/scramblers and that so nothing hectic.

Just wondering about the climate?  Part of me thinks it's kinda near the Lowveld....HOT!!!  But then again isn't Bulembu in the mountains (Could be cold)

I've got a nice Rally jacket and wear armour underneath but that double layer in 30deg+ gets pretty damn warm.  Other option is a full mesh street jacket, but not as easy to travel in and zero help if it does get cold.


What should I be expecting?

We are experiencing fairly cool weather in the Lowveld at present, but looks like it will heat up towards the weekend.

 Swazi can cool down significantly at night and early morning riding can be very chilly, especially high lying areas like Bulembu.

Thanks man, :thumleft:

Just getting a weather forecast doesn't give you a great idea.  30deg in JHB is fine, but 30deg in the lowveld is harsh haha
