Swaziland has a rich history, and provides a myriad of activities to suit each individual preference. But there is so much more to enjoy! Join us in tracking lions on the Hlane Big Cats tour. This includes a full day tracking lion, cheetah and leopard in the Hlane Royal National Park, with an optional walking safari. Lunch and light refreshments are served.

It is a place where one gets refreshed.The place is semi-traditional and most amazingly are en suit huts. touring the park was really awesome. The park has different touring routes by vehicles or walking. There are different animals along the routes.

Hlane offers something for everyone, but due to this, doesn't excellent in any particular field. Accommodation, the restaurant, the price and the game experience were all reasonable, but none were overly memorable. It was great seeing the lion enclosure but the walk was sub-par. Overall...More

We were expecting to be wowed by Hlane as it's the King Mswati's game park and the only one in Swaziland that has lions. We were very disappointed as we saw one lion, under a tree and it didn't look the healthiest. Out of all...More

This park is very nice, smaller compared to Kruger so you have a better chance to see animals. The guides are very knowledgeable and there aren't many tourists so you get a private tour. But Mkhaya is better because it is smaller and it is...More
