There's Lots To See And Do
In Swaziland

Sundowners Backpackers is located in the middle of the country close to the tourist hot spot of Ezulwini. For a detailed map of Swaziland, please see the Contact page.

There are shops, entertainment, nightlife, hiking and biking trails as well as many cultural and adventure activities available close by.

The open friendly attitude of the Swazi people, paired with some of the most stunning geology and ecology in the region, make Swaziland an awesome playground for adventure seekers, wanderers and travelers of all tastes. From serious extreme sports to gentle meanders, Swaziland won't disappoint. If you prefer guided adventures, we can recommend the right people to take you around. If you prefer to follow your own instincts, our helpful staff will be happy to point you in the right direction.

Sundowners is an ideal stop over on the way to or from Mozambique via Durban or JHB. Just 1.5 hours from the Lomahasha border, we can arrange transport for you to backpackers and hostels across Southern Africa.
