Location

Rich, vibrant and astoundingly picturesque, the kingdom of Swaziland is an unspoilt and relatively unknown tourist destination. Bursting with breath-taking sub-Saharan landscapes full of variety and colours. Swaziland is a small country, rich in culture and tradition. A journey to this African gem is one of unexpected discovery; Mountains, Savannahs and fertile valleys inhabited by only a million people. The natural warmth and hospitality is guaranteed to make you want to stay forever.

 

Over the past thirteen years, Buckswood have developed close, personal ties within the Kingdom of Swaziland. As a demonstration of the confidence which we have in the future development of Swaziland, the school made a substantial investment and built a Lodge House. The setting is ideal for shaking off the red dust, popping your feet up and contemplating the events of another beautiful, inspiring day in Africa. You can enjoy the many wonders of Swaziland and savour the beauty in this wonderful lodge.

 

In the Administrative Capital of the Lubombo area, Siteki lies in the heart of rural Swaziland. Only thirty kilometres to the south of the Mlawula Nature Reserve and less than two hours from the capital, Mbabane. On a clear day there are magnificent panoramic views to the West across the entire breadth of Swaziland, and to the East towards the floodplains of Mozambique.

 

Transport

You can rent the Range Rover for driving yourself or arrange for the house chauffeur to drive you around in style to the destination of choice.

Of course, the most popular way to experience a country’s culture is through the food! At Buckswood House we have a fantastic chef, a delightful Swazi lady called Nonny. Nonny can turn her hand to any dish from Fish and Chips to more local African cuisine. If you require a picnic lunch, hamper or a barbeque then Nonny is the one to see.
