Getting Around Swaziland
Hiring a car can be one of the easiest ways to explore the country. The road system is largely well developed, although there is little street lighting. The main road from east to west is the MR3. Some roads are winding and roads can be rough in the bush.

There are a number of international car hire companies in Swaziland. You may need a 4-wheel drive vehicle if travelling to more remote areas.
Kombi taxis (small minibuses) run on fixed routes, with passengers able to hop on and off anywhere along the route.
Buses connect all the main towns, but can be crowded, unreliable, and unsafe for tourists.
The maximum speed limit is 120kph (75mph) on motorways, 80kph (50mph) on the open road, and 60kph (37mph) in built-up areas.
