Bulembu 

is a historic mining village to the west of Pigg’s Peak and lies at the end of an 18 km scenic drive on a gravel road that takes the visitor near Devil’s Bridge on the slopes of Emlembe, which is the highest mountain in Swaziland at 1850 metres. The village, nestled at the foot of the mountain, is surrounded by the natural beauty of lush green hills and eucalyptus forests. Bulembu Country Lodge has been created from beautifully renovated houses full of character, once home to the managers of what use to be Havelock Mine. Today, they form part of the delightful resort, presenting a charming blend of history and nature, beauty and comfort. Visitors may take the hiking trail that leads to the summit and views that provide more than adequate reward for the effort. They may then relax in the evening, enjoying the tranquillity. The road from the Bulembu border to Barberton in South Africa is tarred and is known to be one of the most scenic routes in southern Africa.

Projects to empower the local community include an orphanage for children whose parents have been victims to HIV/AIDS. Crafts and several other businesses are being developed in an effort to create income earning opportunities. There are also now a number of tourist activities available to all guests and visitors that involve the local communities.
