Driving into Swaziland is relatively easy, provided you drive sensibly and avoid the numerous pot holes, ramshackle settlements, pedestrians and wandering livestock found on many of the roads leading into the country. The drive from Johannesburg is approximately 4 hours. Upon entry a fee of R50.00 is required for a car. There is no Bureau to change currency however; the gate does accept South African rand. When driving ensure that relevant documentation is carried such as driver licence and proof of insurance.
