Do you love nature, animals and friendly people? Swaziland is Africa’s last remaining true monarchy and in its unique laid-back way is steeped in Swazi culture and tradition. It is a scenic, hilly Kingdom with the big 5 (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino and Buffalo) and with lots of fun and adventure activities, that captures the heart of anyone who takes the time to experience it.
The contrast between rich and poor in Swaziland is big if you compare certain neighbourhoods in the cities with the rural villages. The country is politically stable and the crime rate in Swaziland is quite low when compared to South Africa, but crime can still occur of course. No need to worry though, because we will make sure you will travel and stay in a safe area. However, like everywhere else in the world, we can’t give you 100% safety guarantee. The necessary precaution and alertness are recommended as always when travelling abroad. Therefore, we will make you aware of all the do’s and don’ts in Swaziland during our specific safety meeting.
Supervision and guidance:
Roel is your contact person for Let’s Go Swaziland. He lives in the Netherlands, from where the preparation for your trip will be done. Roel has many years of living and working experience in Africa. Supervision and guidance in Swaziland is provided by reliable staff from Let’s Go Africa’s partner organizations. We work together with qualified professionals at Bachelor and Master level, who assist you with your project and your study assignments.
The project organization in Swaziland is informed in advance about your arrival with personal information, preferences, project plan, arrival date and duration of your stay. The partner organization and your supervisor in Swaziland take you to your home/workplace on arrival and ensure suitable working and living conditions. The first days you will be shown around and they will introduce you to the local lifestyle, culture and make you feel welcome, safe and comfortable during the rest of your stay.
You can stay close to your project in a hostel together with other volunteers. Contact us for the options and costs.
