Getting There – Swaziland
Travel restrictions and additional entry requirements may apply for Swaziland due to the coronavirus pandemic and if so, can change from day-to-day. Please visit our coronavirus page to stay informed about the latest developments.
Swaziland is almost completely surrounded by South Africa. Most people visiting Swaziland are on a larger tour of South Africa. In fact, Swaziland is perfectly located between Kruger National Park and the parks in KwaZulu Natal in South Africa. Border crossings are straightforward.
Therefore, most people visiting Swaziland fly into O.R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) near Johannesburg to start their South Africa-Swaziland 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 Swaziland, you could fly from Johannesburg to King Mswati III International Airport (SHO) in Manzini, and hire a car here as well.
Scheduled flights from Johannesburg to Manzini in Swaziland can be booked with SA Airlink.
Entry requirements can change, so please contact your local Swaziland embassy to verify the information below is current.
If coming through South Africa, also check the South African visa and entry requirements.
