Piggs Peak is a town in north western Swaziland named after an early resident, William Pigg. It was founded around gold prospecting in 1884, but its main industry is now forestry.
Phophonyane Nature Reserve, situated on the escarpment where the highveld plunges towards the lowveld plains, is known for its waterfalls and diversity of flora and lush riverine vegetation. Piggs Peak Casino takes its name from the area. In 2001 the 115m high wall of the Maguga Dam was completed in the Komati River 12 km south of town.
Piggs Peak provides you a wonderful opportunity for exposure to the unique and colorful Swazi culture, rich with heroic tales of brave warriors and myths of caves inhabited by ancient spirits.
