Forester Arms

Set in stunning mountain countryside Foresters Arms – a short, scenic, tarred drive from the capital, Mbabane – is ideally situated for exploring all the attractions of this majestic Kingdom. The hotel is situated on 90 ha of beautiful Swaziland highlands in the heart of the Kingdom. Fresh vegetables and herbs and (in season) strawberries, young berries and raspberries are used in our food, which is prepared with care and pride. Spoil yourself with our wonderful nine-course dinner by candlelight and choose your wine from our imaginative wine list. The Foresters Arms has its own pure, fresh spring water. This area of Swaziland is a paradise of wild flowers, where agapanthus, cerise watsonias, heath, arum lilies, the fragile dierama and delicate grasses abound.

The Kingdom of Swaziland is old, peaceful, incredibly varied – and unique – it is the last traditional kingdom in Africa. The cheerful, friendly Swazi people have preserved their rich culture and traditions as a vital element in their day to day lives and colorful, mystical ceremonies are held every year to celebrate the Swazi traditions. The most spectacular ceremony is the annual Reed Dance, when thousands of singing and dancing maidens converge on the Royal palace dressed in vibrant traditional costumes. This ceremony takes place in August/September and the dates are determined by the phases of the moon and only announced a few weeks before the event. During the Reed Dance, the maidens cut and collect reeds which are then presented to the Queen Mother and used for rebuilding the enclosure around her home. In this way, they are paying respect to her and indirectly to the older ladies in the Kingdom.
