I was selected as one of a handful of tour operators from around the world invited to participate in an educational experience in the Kingdom of Eswatini (formerly Swaziland), Africa, the first full week of May. I was also the only North American in attendance.

The educational experience gave me a chance to sample different travel itineraries available in Eswatini. I toured multiple game parks (where I got close to the endangered white rhinoceros), went horseback riding, took a canopy zip line tour, camped overnight in the jungle, learned about the local culture through song and dance, and met the Eswatini minister of tourism, Mr. Moses Vilakati. I was even interviewed for local Eswatini TV.

This was a wonderful opportunity to learn about the smallest country in the Southern hemisphere, and one of few remaining absolute monarchies in the world. The people are friendly, and the experiences are second to none. I now can confidently and knowledgeably present Eswatini as a fantastic travel destinations for those who want a uniquely different kind of African experience. Among other attractions, Eswatini is known for its many colorful festivals throughout the year, and multiple types of safari options available (such as horseback riding safaris, bicycle safaris, hiking safaris, and typical game drive safaris). It’s a great place for people who want to see a slice of Africa that few have experienced.
