Long Description:
We've assigned the name "SHEBA'S BREAST" because we've been unable to ascertain the formal name of this beacon.

There are two ways to approach this beacon - (1) from the south through Mantenga Nature Reserve, but you'll need to pay the (quite expensive) entrance fee to get into Mantenga, or (2) from the east starting just south of where the D54 turns off the MR103. This route does not enter Mantenga and is free, and is the route that we recommend.

Either way, you can expect a fairly stiff climb of about 420m vertical and a bit of a scrabble near the top where you'll have stunning views over the Ezulwini Valley and nearby Execution Rock in Mlilwane. Be sure to take sufficient water and snacks for a 2-3 hour hike.

The beacon has been badly vandalised as you'll see from the photo.
Altitude (m): 1180

Beacon Type: Peak

Beacon Construction: Standard beacon

Visit Instructions:
We don't require you to provide any specific proof of your visit, but we do request that you upload photos if possible, the more the merrier.

Ideally, you should try to take photos at the actual beacon location, but if that isn't possible (private property, terrain, etc), then photos taken from a distance are also welcome, especially if the beacon is visible in the photo.
