Directions

Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary,MalkernsFor the Manzini-bound bus from Mbabane, make sure the driver knows you want to get off in the valley. Even some nonexpress buses aren't keen on stopping. Nonshared taxis from Mbabane cost at least US$7 negotiate at night.If you're driving from either Mbabane or Manzini, take the Ezulwini Valley/Lobamba exit off the bypass road. This puts you on the MR103, from where everything is well signposted.
