Piggs Peak named after William Peak is found in the northern parts of the country, in the Hhohho region. Ironically, his son married a girl with the surname Hogg.


Piggs Peak is famously known for its spectacular gold mining, mined during the year 1889 and 1957. Not only is this town known for its gold, there is also plenty of accommodation with luxurious hotels and casinos, lodges and guest houses.
