Access to Swaziland can be made by road or by air.
If you are travelling by road, you can enter Swaziland through any of 13 border posts, with all 4 corners of the country accessible by tarred road. Two border posts are with Mozambique, and the other 11 are with South Africa. All are open 7 days a week and operate at varying hours.
At the moment, it is necessary to complete formalities on both sides of each border. A road tax of Emalangeni 50 (subject to change) is payable at the borders for non-Swaziland registered vehicles. If you are planning on taking your hire car across from South Africa into Swaziland, do remember to clear this with your hire car company beforehand - many companies will need to issue you with a Letter of Authority to show at the border post.
You drive on the left hand side in Swaziland, the same as South Africa. Visitors should be aware that livestock, particularly cattle and goats, tend to stray onto the roads, and therefore care should be taken at all times.
The maximum speed limit is 120 km/h on the highways, 80 km/h on national roads, and 60 km/h in urban areas, unless otherwise marked.
Matsapha International Airport (also referred to as Manzini International Airport with an airport code of MTS) is located 8 km from Manzini, and 25 km from Mbabane.
The national airline is Swaziland Airlink, which operates regular services to and from Johannesburg, connecting with international flights from all over the world. Swazi Express Airways links with Durban and Johannesburg, as well as Maputo and Vilanculos in Mozambique.
An airport tax of Emalangeni 50 (subject to change) is payable when departing from Matsapha Airport.
