30 Inspiring Instagram Images of Swaziland

In August of 2013 I was invited to visit the Kingdom of Swaziland. This small landlocked country is everything you would want in a an African vacation. The best part about visiting Swaziland is that the distances are small, that means more time to see wildlife and experience the culture. We visited during the annual Reed Dance, which is the number one event in the country.

Here are some of my most inspiring Instagram pics from my trip:

No better image can describe Africa quite like this one. Sunset in Mkhaya Game Reserve was the best way to end our trip in Swaziland.
