Any suggestions on routes via Swaziland?
« on: December 22, 2013, 11:17:30 am »
Entering the North West side, probably Oshoek, but that is the main border post so I would like to enter a bit higher where it is quieter, then a few passes etc. Overnight in B&B and out at Golela.......I think?

Don't know if you've done your trip yet ? Don't hold your breath for replies when enquiring about Swaziland, I tried in November and didn't get much. I subsequently learned that you can tour around the whole country in one day. If you come in somewhere south of Osshoek and ride in a clockwise direction you will end up coming out where you want to and will have almost circumnavigated Swaziland.

Ive been to Swaziland twice in the past few months. Oshoek border is very quiet, from there go clocks wise, past Maguga dam and Piggs Peak end up at Big bend the turn inland and not far from there you can go south... Take it very slow or else it will be over in a day
