Take a KQ flight to a festival on our network
Backlit by fiery mountain sunsets across acres of pristine farmland in the Malkerns Valley, MTN Bushfire is Swaziland’s internationally acclaimed three- day world music and arts festival that celebrates creative expression while promoting social responsibility, stimulating the economy, and drawing talent and tourists from across Africa and around the world.
MTN Bushfire 2015 will take place from 29-31 May with the most eclectic and star-studded line-up to date, including Grammy-winning headliners Les Nubians as well as South African superstars The Parlotones. Other top South African acts to feature for the first time this year include Bongeziwe Mabandla and BCUC.
There is also a range of cultural and family-oriented activities such as The Barn – an interactive art, dialogue and performance space, the Global Food Village, the Handcraft and Design Marketplace and Kidzone – a dedicated programme for families.
Border crossings: All of Swaziland’s border posts are open seven days a week. Check www.sntc.org.sz for border post hours of operation. If you are using the Oshoek border post it is highly recommended to plan to leave on Thursday or early Friday as the border post has seen extremely long queues Friday afternoon and evening in previous years.
Immigration: You will need a valid passport to enter Swaziland. You may also require an entry visa. Please check with your Embassy or the Swaziland Tourism Authority website for visa requirements. www.thekingdomofswaziland.com
