“The entire complex of Malandela’s oozes with charm and character from the moment you arrive.” –
Trip Advisor Review
Amid the rural setting of Swaziland’s Malkerns Valley awaits a thoroughly unique and inspiring experience at Malandela’s Centre. Housed on the scenic grounds of a large farm, the complex is backlit by acres of sun-kissed sugar cane and the kaleidoscopic hues of the Mlilwane Mountains. It is a place that ignites the imagination and sparks the senses, a world where art and music lives, cultures unite in harmony, fine casual dining and restful slumber beckons… It is a place that invites smiles and promotes social responsibility.
Enjoy farm-fresh meals at Malandela’s Restaurant and mingle with the locals at the friendly Pub. Relax by the pool and delight in the charm of the Elle Décor-featured Bed & Breakfast. Meander through vibrant Botanical Gardens. View the fantastical work of local artists at House On Fire Gallery and visit the Gone Rural workshop where indigenous women fashion stylish home products from natural and recycled materials. Experience the whimsical architecture and eclectic entertainment at the acclaimed House On Fire Performance Venue or purchase superbly crafted local wares at several fair trade shops. The expansive property – on which the internationally-renowned MTN Bushfire Music/Art/Culture Festival is hosted — provides plenty of space for children to play or a spontaneous football match to erupt.
Want to see and do more? No problem. Visitor info is conveniently available at the centre’s internet café or you can arrange an adventurous excursion with onsite tour company All Out Africa.
Malandela’s is, in the words of one journalist “a living breathing ecosystem.”
