One Lilangeni = One Rand
Swaziland is part of the Rand Monetary Area. The currency, the Lilangeni (plural Emalangeni), is interchangeable with the South African Rand (South African notes are accepted but not coins). Although South African Rands are accepted currency in Swaziland, Emalangeni are not accepted in South Africa; so do ensure to change your Emalangeni back to South African Rand before leaving the country.
Swaziland has one of the most pleasant climates in the world and due to the countries’ four distinct regions, visitors will experience significant differences in temperature within a small area. With a mild summer and winter, the climate in Swaziland is mostly pleasant all year. Rain is more frequent from October to May, but with plenty of sunshine, low humidity and temperatures around 25°C (77°F). Winters can get quite cold at night but are relatively dry. Closer to Mozambique in the lowlands, conditions become more tropical. The three regions are sub-tropical and also have wet summers and dry winters. Here summer temperatures can become very high, while the winters are mild and very pleasant.
