The typical house in the south of Africa is the Rondavel. Built from mud and cow dung, but very durable. They're quite big inside as well.
The one here on the picture has big windows, which makes it comfortable light inside. Somehow it stays quite cool indoors.
On top of the rondavel they sometimes plant small plants or they put fancy shells (when it's close to the beach).

It is a very nice perspective and the good diagonal drawn by the huts led the eye to the mountain in the background. The low morning (?) light is marvellous and brightens the colours. Well done.

Very nice composition. The light is just right and the repeating rondovals ending in a mountain are very nice. Swaziland is such a pleasant country and this is a nice photo to show that.
