Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary

Eswatini - Classic Eswatini

Mlilwane is Eswatini’s best-known nature reserve. It was here in 1961 that Ted Reilly – whose father had settled at the property in 1906 – first took action to save what remained of the kingdom’s wildlife, converting it into a sanctuary and rounding up animals from elsewhere around the country before they were hunted out.

Although Big Game Parks – the independent conservation trust that Reilly subsequently founded – has since acquired the management of the more substantial reserves of Hlane and Mkhaya, Mlilwane remains its spiritual home.
