The village

Mantenga Nature Reserve - Swaziland

This tiny reserve is a good place to experience the Swazi culture. Indeed, the cultural village is far more interesting than the nature itself.

The village is an example of huts of a man and its family. In this case, the man has two wives and several children; polygamy is accepted in this culture. Nowadays, they are still Swazi people who live according to the tradition, but they are not very common.
