A thermic winter site. ‘Lone Tree Hill’ stands forward of the rumpled border-hills of Swaziland. The White Cliffs behind takeoff provide good height gains (2000m), though big sink between thermals makes for slow flying.


Grassy slopes, landing fields everywhere, gentle thermals and regular climbs make this a perfect site for beginners. Conditions are milder here than the strong thermic flying experienced further inland.
