Country Clubs in Swaziland

The majority of country clubs in Swaziland are found within the Sugar Estates on the eastern side of the country.

They have golf courses and a variety of other sporting activities on offer, plus sports bars and other facilities. The clubs are no means exclusive and offer a pleasant place to eat or spend the night.
