Welcome to the WikiProject Swaziland! This group was formed to better organize articles on Swaziland in a spirit of cooperation.


This group includes within its scope all articles related to Swaziland, its cities, geography, transportation, culture, history and so on. It aims to expand Wikipedia's resources on Swaziland in a fair and accurate manner. All of these articles should be contained within the Category:Swaziland or one of its subcategories.


If you haven't already done so, please also add your name to the members list of our parent Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa.

Members should also feel free to add {{User WikiProject Swaziland}} to their userpages. This will translate to:
