Malolotja and Phophonyane up for ‘8th Wonder of the World’


Malolotja Nature Reserve and Phophonyane Nature Reserve have been listed on Virtual Tourist, a Trip Adviser company, as a potential 8th Wonder of the World.

They are up against attractions such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Hells Canyon and even Hollywood! Visitors to the site are able to vote for which natural wonder they want to take the 8th place, and can even vote numerous times (once a day).

Malolotja Nature Reserve in Swaziland includes over 18 000 hectares of mountain wilderness in the north-west of Swaziland. The reserve provides protected wetland, woodland, highveld grassland and mistbelt forest habitats for a wide variety of plant and animal life. The reserve also plays a crucial role for brid life, and is recognised as one of southern africa’s more important conservation areas for endangered birds.

Phophonyane is another of Swaziland’s fantastic reserves. The central feature of the reserve is the Phophonyane Falls, a series of cascades and waterfalls which stretches for 3 kilometres and bisects the reserve along the geologically remarkable Phophonyane Shear Zone. The other main features of the reserve are the dramatic python cliffs which are formed of a large granite outcrop and the Mbevane Falls and stream which are flanked by an impressive riverine forest.

Remember – you can vote as many times as you like!
