SWAZILAND is a landlocked hilly country almost entirely within the borders of the Republic of South Africa but with a short border in the east with Mozambique. The mountains in the west of the country rise to almost 2,000 meters or 6,562 feet then descend in steps of savanna toward the hilly country in the east.

Most of the population work on the land raising livestock or growing crops such as cotton, maize, and fruits. Forestry is an essential industry with production centered mainly on pine since it matures exceptionally quickly due to Swaziland’s climate.

Coal is mined and also asbestos, although in lessening amounts due to its associated health risks. Manufacturing includes fertilizers, textiles, leather, and tableware. Tourism is a growing industry, with the country’s game reserves, spas, and casinos proving popular destinations for visitors.
