Getting There – Eswatini (Swaziland)
Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) is almost completely surrounded by South Africa. Most people visiting Eswatini are on a larger tour of South Africa. In fact, Eswatini is perfectly located between Kruger National Park and the parks in KwaZulu Natal in South Africa. Border crossings are straightforward.
Therefore, most people visiting Eswatini fly into O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) near Johannesburg to start their South Africa–Eswatini tour.
Self-drive is a popular option but in most other cases, your local tour operator will arrange pick-up from the airport and further transportation as part of your tour package.
If you want to visit just Eswatini, you could fly from Johannesburg to King Mswati III International Airport (SHO) in Manzini, and hire a car here as well.
