This is THE place for one-stop souvenir shopping! In addition to a nice variety of beautiful, high quality candles, they also have shops selling funny mugs/magnets, batiks and hand woven scarves. An open area in front displays wood crafts. Allow 11/2-2 Hours. .

Candle factory has a huge selection- but the surrounding vendors have lots of curios. A lot of those vendors have things that do. To look local - but from west Africa. Place full of tour buses. We found nothing that we wanted.

We were brought here by our tour group for lunch and shopping. It's a little area with a coffee shop and vendors selling various crafts. The candles are nice and varied. They also make and sell soaps here.

This was a stop on our Gate 1 tour of South Africa and Swaziland. The candle factory was ok, but there were several arts and crafts vendors on the property and everyone enjoyed the shopping. It is worth a one hour stop to shop.

A visit to the swazi candles and the adjacent market is a must. The variety of candles and colours and combination of colours must be experienced to be appreciated.
