After Breakfast We check out Mantenga Lodge and we quickly do 3 hours for the Mantenga Nature Reserve and we heading at Malolotja Nature Reserve. On arrival at Malolotja you will have the choice of two guided trails. Both trail options are scenic walks as opposed to walking wildlife safaris and the focus is on experiencing the breathtaking scenery of the reserve. One option is the Majolomba Trail, a 5km loop route starting from the Malolotja picnic site following the beautiful and gently sloping grasslands of the Majolomba Valley. This is a relatively easy trail which descends gently down the valley crossing the Majolomba stream six times as it weaves through beautiful grassland and vleis. At the trails midpoint some magnificent views of the majestic Malolotja Valley open up to the north and there is ample opportunity for some classic scenic photography. The second half of the trail climbs back up the opposite side of the Majolomba Valley and is relatively steep in places before it joins the road head which leads back to the picnic site. The second option has the Malolotja Waterfalls as its focus and is a short 3 km out-and-back trail which begins from the Logwadja start point and descends steeply into the main Malolotja River Valley. The trail is short but strenuous as it is relatively steep on the way in and out. The efforts are worth it however, as the views across the entire Malolotja Valley and beyond are very impressive and rewarding. The Malolotja Falls themselves are the highest waterfalls in Swaziland (90m) and although it is only a small river the setting for the falls is quite spectacular. After the trail you will leave Malolotja and drive for just 45 minutes to the secluded Phophonyane Eco Lodge where you will settle into your rooms and prepare for dinner in the spacious dinner area.

Rest and breathe the revitalizing air and enjoy the sight of the famous Phophonyane waterfalls and cascades which tumble over several kilometres of beautifully exposed ancient gneiss, the world's oldest rock, formed over 3.6 billion years ago.

At the heart of Morija Museum &Archives (MMA) are its valuable archival and museum collections, which have been growing incrementally since the 19th century. These collections form the basis for research and publishing, as well as exhibitions and educational programmes for schools, visitors and tourists. Morija Museum was formally established in 1956 based upon the Dieterlen family ethnographic and historical collections together with palaeotological and geological collections from the Ellenbergers. These two collections provided the main pillars of the present-day Museum collections which have been growing incrementally over the past 50 years. In 2005, for example, a collection of more modern material culture including hundreds of beaded items was bequeathed to the museum by Chris Van Nispen. Other MMA(NGOs) initiatives have made a great impact in the arts and culture, the most notable being Maeder House Art Gallery, the embryonic Morija Arts Centre, the annual Morija Arts & Cultural Festival, and the nation-wide School Cultural Competitions. The Museum has helped to develop and encourage a wider range of tourism services and products in the greater Morija area, including the Museum Tea Room, Picnic Area and Amphitheatre for larger events; tours of historic Morija and dinosaur footprints, walking trails, bird-watching and pony-trekking; as well as guest houses, conference centre, home-stays, village experiences, cultural activities, catering services, and art/craft production.
