Description of Eswatini Course
This online-course has been created for Registered South African Tourist Guides traversing through The Eswatini (the land of the Swazi's). It is aimed at National Guides conducting national tours passing through Eswatini, and also at KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga Regional Guides who include a Swaziland component in their South African-based regional activities.

The course will provide foundations in Geology, Geography, Culture, Traditions, Archaeology, History, Economy and Fauna and Flora of Eswatini.
