Excerpts from "A Traveller's Guide to Swaziland" by Bob Forrester.
CARS and DRIVING
Index to information in the guide
Swaziland has not been able to enter the mass tourism market since the days when we had the only casinos and blue movies in the sub-continent. Instead what is now attracting many visitors is the prospect of adventure tourism, where you go on an organised adventure. This may sound a little contrived, but if you are shooting down white water rapids the question of how you got there becomes irrelevant. The thrill is the same. You can go on the world's most vertical walk, caving, quad biking or go white water rafting with Swazi Trails. email@example.com Phone 416 2180 or 602 0832.
