Top tips for hiring a car in Eswatini

  • Renting a car in Eswatini, Africa, has numerous benefits compared to public transportation. You can conveniently and flexibly visit attractions at your preferred time and pace. You can customize your itinerary according to your preferences. Rental vehicles also provide privacy and ample space for luggage and passengers when visiting Eswatini with family or a group of friends. You can easily visit attractions, including Malolotja Nature Reserve, Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary, Sibebe Rock, and Mantenga Nature Reserve and Cultural Village, with a rental car, as they provide access to areas barely reachable by public transport.
  • Eswatini features mountainous regions, including the Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary and Malolotja Nature Reserve areas. The roads leading to these areas are steep and winding; therefore, you may want to rent a vehicle with good engine power and handling to drive on these roads effortlessly. Eswatini also experiences rainy seasons between October and April, making roads slippery and challenging, especially on unpaved roads. Consider renting a four-wheel-drive vehicle that can handle rough terrain with clearance to drive through such roads quickly and safely.
  • If you travel to Eswatini with young kids, consider bringing your child seats. In Eswatini, child and booster seats are mandatory for kids below 135 cm (about 4 ft 5 in) or below 12 years old. Consider renting a car with a child seat when you don’t have one. Be sure to request installation services from the rental company.
  • If you want to cross the border with a rental car from Eswatini, you can do so with a permit from the rental agency. You will incur various costs for crossing the border with a rental car from Eswatini. Check that your rental agency has insurance coverage for cross-border travel. To take your rental car across the border, you must have the rental agreement, vehicle registration and insurance documents, power of attorney, driver’s license, and identification documents. Ask if your car rental agency offers roadside assistance services in the destination country.
  • Book your car hire in Eswatini at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
