The public transportation system in Swaziland is relatively reliable if slightly intimidating. A network of privately owned minibuses run along set routes throughout the country. In the main cities they can be found in bustling bus stations and by asking around you can find one going your way. Kombies stop at both designated stops and pretty much anywhere along the road. If you can’t find a designated stop, as they are not usually marked, just stick out your arm and flap it enthusiastically and the Kombie will stop for you. Kombies are notorious for driving dangerously and honking often, so a ride in one is never dull. Expect to pay about a dollar for each 10 kilometers of your journey.
