Enveloped by sugar cane ranches and estates, Simunye Swaziland nestles within the lowveld region where agriculture plays a big part in the economic infrastructure. The quaint town oozes an ambiance reminiscent of ancient Swaziland. Simunye is the perfect base from where to explore the awesome nature and game parks in the area or an excellent stop-over en-route to the Kruger National Park.
Whilst visiting the lowveld region, stay at the Simunye Country Club Hotel, Shewula Mountain Camp or opt for a traditional beehive hut, cottages and camp accommodation offered at the parks. The town offer shopping facilities, entertainment and a multi-purpose sport stadium mainly used for football matches. Simunye Country Club hosts an annual fair where great rides, food, entertainment and markets make for a fun family day. Trips to the sugar cane mills to learn more about the processing of sugar can be arranged.
The spectacular Hlane National Park is home to the Big Five and is just minutes from Simunye. Go on guided game drives in semi-open Land Rovers, mountain bike the trails, partake in guided bush walks, or find a spot near a water hole to watch the game vie for a place. Have a picnic or sundowners whilst watching the jaw-dropping sunsets set the African skies ablaze. Hike the Simunye Nature Reserve adjoining Mlawula and Mbuluzi Nature Reserves where fantastic bird watching opportunity exits. Walk the well-marked trails along the Mlawula River, or a trip to the marabou stork nesting site is really worthwhile. Simunye is peaceful and surrounded by picturesque landscapes, a wonderful escape to relax in a welcoming atmosphere while unearthing the treasures of the lowveld.
