The practise of responsible tourism in its widest sense.Phophonyane has succeeded in establishing itself as a very successful and sustainable nature reserve. The reserver has succeeded in re-establishing a very rich and lush riverine forest and to protect one of Swaziland's most spectacular waterfalls. It may not be large in terms of size, but in terms of impact within Swaziland as a whole, and within neighbouring communities in particular, it punches well above its weight. The reserve is entirely staffed by local indigenous Swazis and preference is given to those in neighbouring communities. There is significant interaction with local communities on many social and environmental issues.
