One of eSwatini’s most pristine getaways, Dwaleni Farm Lodge, has launched an event that is believed will attract tourists, both local and international.

The eSwatini Mobile Festival Xplosion, scheduled for July 27, is the first event of its kind, and will feature award-winning fireworks displays as well as a line-up of world-renowned musical acts.

Developer of the concept, Msimisi Dlamini of Dwaleni Farm Lodge in Manzini, the country’s second-largest urban centre after Mbabane – believes that the event, which will be annual, will serve as a major tourism attraction, have significant spin-offs, and benefit the country’s hospitality industry.

“More than an experience, this is a festival with the goal of becoming a world-class event that attracts global recognition and support — a way of luring tourists into the country, as well as a means of showcasing eSwatini’s attractions,” said Dlamini.

The festival will focus on fireworks, cuisine, music and children’s activities, with fireworks being presented by Fireworks For Africa, which has performed presentations around the globe. Cuisine will include a menu that is culturally diverse – Swati, Chinese, Portuguese and Indian, with game meat. There will also be quad biking, jumping castles and more for children to enjoy.
