Siteki (Marrying Place) is a trading town in the foothills of the Lebombo Mountains about 8km from Lonhlupheko off the MR16. It got its name when Mbandzeni (great-grandfather of the present king) gave his frontier troops permission to marry. Siteki is the fastest route to Mozambique from Manzini through the Mhlumeni-Goba border.
Nhlangano is the closest town to the border post at Mahamba, useful if you get stuck here; but otherwise, there’s no reason to stop. If you need accommodation, the pleasant Phumula Guest House is 3km from town (around 10km from the border) and 1km off the main road. Pleasant rooms are around manicured lawns and gardens with a pool and braai area.
