Ngwenya/Oshoek Border Hours Extended

Great news for our visitors!

The governments of Swaziland and South Africa have extended the operating hours of the Ngwenya/Oshoek border.

Starting today 15 August 2012, Ngwenya/Oshoek Border Gate will operate from 07h00 to 00h00, a 2 hour addition from the original closing time of  22h00. This indefinite extension is to facilitate the secure and effective movement of persons and goods between the two countries.

With Umhlanga/Reed Dance starting in less than 20 days, news of this extension will be most welcomed by culture enthusiasts wanting to experience this annual traditional ceremony. Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary located just 5 km from Ludzidzini Royal Residence in Lobamba is the best base to experience the Umhlanga located. Mlilwane also offers a wide range of accommodation, suitable for every price point from backpacking to Camping and Caravanning, self-catering cottages as well as the up-market Reilly’s Rock, in addition to its numerous activities and dining options.

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.
