Sibebe Survivor is a much anticipated and very successful annual fund raising event, initiated and managed by the Rotary Club of Mbabane Mbuluzi. Sibebe, a granite mountain towering over Pine Valley in Swaziland, located 10km from the capital city Mbabane, is the largest exposed pluton and second largest monolith in the world. It rises 350m above the valley of the Mbuluzi River. As a club aligned to the Mbuluzi area, we are privileged to be able to host the walk up the world’s largest granite monolith, an area of abundant natural beauty and unique geology.
