    Difficulty: 5

The Eswatini Dual Bike Adventure (EDBA) will host its 1st event at Maguga Lodge near Pigs Peak in Swaziland!

 

Maguga Lodge is located within some of the oldest mountains in the world on the edge of Maguga Dam in Eswatini. It is a 3-star lodge with restaurant and outdoor pool. Established in the year 2001, Maguga Lodge boasts an impressive expanse of blue water which can be reached via a loop road east of the MR1, which crosses the Nkomati Valley at the dam wall. It is Eswatini’s largest reservoir and its wall, which stands 115m high, is the fourth largest in southern Africa. Visitors can pause to take in the view at various points. Boating and fishing are both available on the dam, with fully equipped houseboats for hire. You might even glimpse one of the hippos that sometimes make their way here along the Nkomati. The dam was built under the auspices of the joint South Africa/ Swaziland Komati Basin Water Authority (KOBWA), and today produces hydroelectric power and supplies irrigation to farmers across a wide area. When completed in 2001, it received the South Africa Institute of Civil Engineering award for ‘most outstanding achievement’ in the international category.

For many visitors Maguga Dam is just a scenic pit-stop between Mbabane and the Kruger Park. In this respect, the Maguga Lodge restaurant is beautifully located. Seated on southern shore, its terrace overlooking the glittering waters.
