The Swazi Cultural Village was very interesting with a good guide who led us through the area explaining the life of the swazi. It terminated with a very active song and dance routine. It was very entertaining

The visit gets its extra flavor if you go when the dance is performed. Great performance, great traditional songs and instruments. Also the village is nice to visit, especially if a guide teaches you the details, which you may not understand without. Finally, the waterfall...More

They have very good traditional culture introduction and very good performance.I spent E100 for their CD because the singing is so beautiful.... Then I found the CD quality is just a disaster. The only thing I can hear is wind and noise...
