The Kingdom of Swaziland, one of Africa's few remaining monarchies, is landlocked by South Africa and Mozambique. Located in southern Africa, Swaziland is a small country with limited birding to be had, however it does present one of the best opportunities to catch up with one of Southern Africa's rarest birds, the vulnerable Blue Swallow.

The 1,800 hectare Malalotja Nature Reserve is home to one of Southern Africa's rarest birds, the magnificent Blue Swallow. It is arguably Swaziland's most attractive reserve, lying on the edge of the Drakensberg Escarpment and protecting a wide variety of habitats that range in altitude from below 800m to above 1,800m. The birdlist of over 280 species is correspondingly diverse and it is possible in summer to see more than 100 species in a day here. (Text courtesy African Bird Club)
