Sibebe Survivor Fitness Experience Weekend – 24 & 25 September 2022

Join thousands of emaSwati Survive Sibebe. As our Tourism authority so eloquently states: “Sibebe Rock, just north of Mbabane, is one of southern Africa’s most impressive geological features. This immense, three-billion-year-old volcanic slab, which rises to 1,488 m and covers some 16,500 ha, is the world’s largest granite dome. Only Australia’s Uluru pips it to the title of ‘world’s largest rock’”.

The walk

The Rotary club of Mbuluzi Mbabane would like to invite you to take part in this great event and help raise money to benefit people and communities less privileged than ourselves.

Sunday the 25th September is still the main day of the event, the walk will start from Sibebe Resort, exploring the beautiful hills and valleys around Sibebe area to the Mvithiza waterfalls, up the Ntsantsama river to the top of Sibebe rock while appreciating beautiful caves along the way. From the top of Sibebe rock the trail will then return to Sibebe Resort where the official ceremony will be conducted.

This is a new route that Sibebe Survivors have not used before; join us and appreciate, not only the beauty of the rock but also the surroundings.

The Event

This year the event starts on Saturday the 24th September. Sibebe Resort will allow free entry to all Sibebe Survivor participants with a valid wristband.

The resort will have a series of pre-walk activities and entertainment on offer. These activities are described below under the Event Partner section and will be updated up until the day of the event.

Sponsors

Title Sponsor

Nedbank Eswatini are proud to be in partnership with the Rotary Club of Mbuluzi Mbabane that has its foundations on values that Nedbank are equally passionate about: giving back to the community.

With the covid pandemic having stalled most activities they are glad tofinally be able to get out and interact socially.

Nedbank has constantly been motivated by the social and economic impact this initiative has had on beneficiaries, as the proceeds from Sibebe Survivor are channeled towards assisting the underprivileged communities throughout the country, as well as certain projects within the Mbuluzi area. Over the years, millions of Emalangeni from Sibebe Survivor proceeds have been utilised in supporting different causes such as orphaned and vulnerable children, hospitals, schools and projects in various communities throughout the country.

As we continue to make this event bigger and better, we are shining the spotlight on our historic and monumental tourist attraction – Sibebe Rock. In turn, we are promoting Eswatini as a tourist destination of choice – both domestically and internationally.

“We would like to particularly thank the community of Mbuluzi and the Sibebe Community Trust for supporting this initiative over the years.

We thank Nedbank for their generous sponsorship of E 150,000-00
