March 19, 2013 (Siteki, Swaziland) Located on the eastern edge of Swaziland, Mabuda Farms almost at the Mozambique border in the Lobamba mountains. The farm is the Pons’ homestead and is also our “home away from home” during our stay here in Swaziland. This lush area of the Middlefelt was just high enough to protect earlier settlers from malaria. It overlooks the fertile Lowfelt fields with some spectacular views. Mabuda Farms is an oasis that hosts guests in a “bed and breakfast” format, but really is more than that. Its fields of crops, beehives, orchard, pastures in addition to a grand old main homestead, it has many smaller “duplex” cottages that host 8 people. The Green Shed hosts guests for meals and there are countless paths through the woods, pastures, and gardens. Spectacular sunrise and sunsets viewed from the ridges around paint pastels with Impressionist flavor. Jono and Helen Pons’ exceptionally warm hospitality is reflected through all the staff here – a real paradise!
