A Travellerís Guide to Swaziland was printed by CTP printers in Paarl, South Africa. We have used them for other projects with excellent results, however this time they printed the trial version, not the final one. The result is many typos, which are irritating, but not serious and some major errors. We will not be using CTP again. The book has an errata sheet on page 4.

Community projects are under the Accommodation entry.
Sibebe Rock, and its hiking trails, are on page 19.
Nsangwini Rock Art project is on page 18.
