Swaziland Life

Several centuries ago an African people of Nguni descent moved southwards from Central Africa and a group of them eventually settled, during the mid eighteenth century, in the area which is now Swaziland.The Nguni people are recorded as having entered the territory of Swaziland around the year 1600.
Under the leadership of Dlamini III, settlement took place in 1750, along the Pongola River where it cuts through the Lubombo Mountains.
The Kingdom of Swaziland today is composed of a homogeneous population who shares language, culture and loyalty to their King and country. There are no tribal conflicts, the country is stable, orderly and at peace with her neighbors the continuity of the monarchy contributes to the country's stability and peaceful climate while ensuring that the cultural heritage is safeguarded as Swaziland develops. Tribes in Swaziland are mainly Swazi, Zulu,European,Tonga and Shangaan.
