Swaziland’s Border Hours Extended

With less than 5 days  till Christmas, Swaziland’s Ministry of Home Affairs and its counterparts in South Africa have announced an extension of the operation hours for three major border posts into Swaziland. For the many returning students, workers and tourists these news brings a sigh of relief to most.

The three border posts that will have their hours extended during the festive season are the Ngwenya, Mahamba and Mananga Border Gates.

The scheduled extension hours are:

  • From the 12th to the 19th December 2011:  Ngwenya will run from 07h00 to 12h00 midnight.
  • From the 20th to the 24th December 2011:  Ngwenya will run for 24 hours.
  • From the 22nd to the 24th December 2011: Mahamba border post will run from 06h00 to 00h00 midnight.
  • From the 20th December 2011 to the 2nd of January 2012: Mananga border will run from 07h00 to 20h00.

All other border posts leading into Swaziland will not be affected by the extension and will operate as usual.

Sawubona! Welcome to Big Game Parks' Blog! From the flatlands in the East, through the mountainous and scenic West, to the heart of the lowveld in the South East, the Kingdom of Swaziland not only offers you nearly every example of African landscape but also unforgettable wildlife, culture, adventure and birding experiences. Big Game Parks (BGP) is a private non-profit Trust which manages three game reserves in Swaziland: Hlane Royal National Park, Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary and Mkhaya Game Reserve. All follow a common mission: to conserve the rich biodiversity of Swaziland's natural heritage. In 1960 the Reilly's family established the Kingdom's first game reserve on the Reilly family farm, Mlilwane. Hlane Royal National Park and Mkhaya Game Reserve soon followed and today the company's contribution to the restoration and protection of the Kingdom’s biodiversity is of great significance (BGP actually saved 22 species from extinction in Swaziland!) and can truly be appreciated by the discerning traveller. Swaziland is well-situated between Kruger National Park and Kwa-Zulu Natal as well as Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Maputo. Big Game Parks’ well-positioned and diverse game reserves are an essential destination in any itinerary.
