Summerfield Botanical Gardens

July 05, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I know its been a while since I posted anything, but I have had to focus on healing and we haven't done a whole lot.  We did go to Hlane again and as usual we loved it.  But other than that we haven't been out much.

This past Sunday we decided to try and find the “only” baobab tree that is SUPOSEDLY in Swaziland… well we were not lucky in our search, we found a few references to it online but no one mentioned the exact location. We used the references we found as guides, but we did not find the tree!  If anyone knows where it is please let me know.  We will find the trees in the countries that they are native too but I wanted to share this tree with the guest of Swaziland and if we ever find it I will let you know where the location of it is.  I have never seen one in person but I hear that they are amazing. 

After driving around Manzini for a while we decided to head to Summerfield Botanical Gardens for lunch.  I must say that this is probably one of the prettiest resorts that I have seen so far.  I basically have no words to describe Summerfield because it is absolutely stunning.   We toured the grounds and took a few pictures to share with you.  The bungalows are spacious and well decorated.  The pool is very nice and fairly large in size.  The grounds/gardens are well kept, beautiful and serene. 

I must say that the restaurant is so far my FAVORITE “sitdown” restaurant here in Swaziland.  The restaurant is not only relaxing, but the views are also amazing and the food is delicious.  The seating at the Grand Palm Cascade is very “quaint”; you are on a small Gazebo or in the Pavilion’s with a thatched roof and you have views of the lake no matter where you sit. I tried the Sirloin Skewers, which came with rice and veggies on a pie type crust.  The food was perfectly prepared and tasted very good.   The price is a little on the higher side but so worth it because of the setting, the portions and the quality.

I must say we plan to return many more times in the future!
