Named after a sweeping curve on the great Usuthu River in Swaziland, Big Bend lies on a 'big bend' in the river where it meets the Lebombo Mountains. Big Bend itself is a small town with only a few shops and Swaziland Big Bend Hotel accommodation, but is blessed with views of the surrounding hills across the river, and a wild and beautiful gorge through the mountains. Big Bend accommodation in Swaziland is surrounded by large cattle ranches and the vast plantations of the Ubombo Sugar Estate and the big bend in the Usuthu River made the town Big Bend ideal for the irrigation of a large area of low lying bush, which eventually made Big Bend a centre for sugar production in the region.
For some golf in Swaziland, the Ubombo Country Club in Big Bend is recognised for its interesting golfing, and features a restaurant, bar and conference facilities, as well as squash courts, swimming pools and fitness facilities. The Royal Swazi Spa Golf Club and Nkonyeni Golf Estate would definitely also be worth investigating if you are interested in some challenging Swaziland golf alternatives.
If you're looking for excellent Swaziland Boutique Hotel accommodation in Big Bend then have a look at Lituba Lodge, which is a rustic lodge set in a beautiful and tranquil rural setting, where it nestles beneath the shadow of the Lebombo mountains just off the main road between Big Bend and Siteki.
