African safaris are a hallmark of a complete Africa experience, though cost can often be a barrier to entry. This game drive, however, in Eswatini’s Mkhaya Game Reserve, is not only one of the most memorable in Africa, it’s also one of the most affordable.
Mkhaya Game Reserve was established in 1979 with the goal of conserving endangered wildlife species. The reserve is home to a wide variety of animals, including black and white rhinos, elephants, and buffalo, as well as over 200 bird species. Visitors to Mkhaya Game Reserve can go on game drives, which are guided tours through the reserve in open-sided vehicles. These game drives give visitors the opportunity to see animals in their natural habitat, and learn about the reserve’s efforts to conserve endangered species.
