Our fully licenced bar is becoming popular and open daily from 8am to 2am, with a local music vibe and a great variety of drinks. In winter the coal-wood stove won't fail to warm you up while you have your favorite drink or snack. The service is very people friendly never failing to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Our budget day trips entail visits to San Rock Paintings, to the Gap (Esicancweni)(where the Nkomati disappears for 100 meter under rocks), to the Lubuyane waterfall (the best kept secret in our area) which tumbles for 25 meter to form the most perfect swimming rock pool, to Malolotja Nature Reserve and take advantage of all the fun it offers, to Hawane Stables for a scenic horse trail, even overnight if you have the stamina, to the local crafters (soapstone and wood carving). Regular shuttles to Pigg's Peak or Mbabane for those who come without car happen every other day and give you a chance to check your e-mail, do your supplying and banking. We do stock basic groceries.
Our relative proximity to the Kruger National Park Malelane gate in South Africa has turned Sobantu into an overnight stop for those tourists who go to or come from Kruger Park and want to see Swaziland's natural beauty on their way.
At Sobantu Guest Farm we have tried to do that extra effort and gave attention to details which created a pleasing atmosphere which will guarantee the visitor a worthwhile stay. But by all means come and see for yourself. We expect phone landline connection in 2002 but you have to bear with us and leave message on our cell phone(s). You can just come there is plenty of space most of the time!
