The hike up to the hill is not that difficult. I feel like I had to go just for the fact that's the second biggest rock in the world.

We went to Sibebe with a friend both for hiking and picnic. The views are great from the top. We had our picnic next to cave like rocks, inside and near the cave we found some ashes; some people were probably having a braai there....More

Located in a side valley outside of Mbabane, this mountain chain has a huge amount of exposed granite. It is quite beautiful and very photogenic. You can climb Sibebe Rock (or trek in the area) with a guide. Don't try it on your own.

I was told this is the oldest rock in the world. Very interesting. You can drive for free along the road and see the mountain.

Hi - as my only experience of Sibebe was during the annual Sibebe Challenge in August, I do not feel qualified to comment on hiking at another time. I think I saw on some website advice that one should arrange for a guide... More
