Owner description: Swaziland has a rich history, and provides a myriad of activities to suit each individual preference. Experience Swazi arts and crafts by spending a half-day visiting the variety of markets in Ezulwini Mantenga, Mlilwane and Malkerns, including the unique Candle Factory. An alternative route can be taken via Ezulwini Valley up to Mbabane City, Motshane and the Ngwenya Glass Factory where one can see the Swazi glass blowers exercising their skills.

Reviewed 3 May 2014

A great range, real friendly stall holders with plenty to see. We purchased a number of items which seemed to be reasonably priced.

“A must to see”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Unfortunately it was raining when we were there so all the outdoor vendors were closed, but there were still enough shops to buy goodies. Our favorite was the Swazi candles, such beautiful designs, and the baobab batik is stunning. The café makes delicious food, so plan your trip for lunch.

Lovely short stop over. Candles are wonderful really unusual colourful patterns on African animal shapes. Nice to get something different that you'll not find at home .Lots of other nice craft stalls in the complex too .
