Pristine wilderness in the Swazi highlands
Overall rating

Malolotja is a beautiful hiking destination. On my visit, I wasn’t equipped for an overnight trail, but that is the way to really appreciate this pristine area. I went on a day hike and enjoyed looking at little grassland flowers – easily overlooked but stunning from close up. I visited in the dry season, so the waterfall wasn’t at its best, but worth checking out all the same. Although I’d chosen a short hike, I’d taken my time looking at birds, flowers and a troop of baboons, and I found myself some distance from the end as sunset loomed. The walk/run back was less memorable, but my last glance over my shoulder as I got safely back to my car took my breath away: endless rolling hills at dusk with a shimmer of orange at the horizon. I knew I’d have to come back for an overnight expedition.
