GEOLOGY The mountains in view boast a long and prestigious existence, towering over this small Kingdom for over the last 3500 million years and leaving behind evidence of some of the oldest and best-preserved sequence of volcanic and sedimentary rocks on earth. Brilliantly preserved rock art, Nsangweni Rock Art, can be found hidden in rock faces throughout the landscape and well worth the visit.
The valley at the bottom of this ancient mountain range is the large basin fresh water dam, fed from the Komati River. The waters edge weaves through the staggering peaks on either side, and spills over a steep 115m dam wall on the south edge, (viewed from Maguga Lodge) where the Komati River creates beautiful rock sculptures and gorges as the river continues to flow south towards the heart of Swaziland.
