Overview

Watch our glassblowers creating wonderful african animal figurines and tableware using 100% recycled glass, from an overhead balcony. Feel the heat of the furnace and understand why we say we are the HOTTEST attraction in Swaziland. Our well stock showroom is attached to the factory and there is a coffee shop offering light meals. Beer and wine also available. In our well established gardens there is an array of well stocked craft shops selling Swazi Fair Trade products, all produced within Swaziland. Central in the garden is a jungle gym for the young ones to enjoy whilst the adults shop.

The focus on glass recycling here impressed me, and their products are beautiful. There are additional shops on site--I love the earrings I bought there.

A great stop-over with a glass factory that has an excellent selection of glass (glasses, vases, bowls etc) and very reasonable pricing for hand-made objects. All are made from recycled glass. You can also have a short guided tour through the factory. A good place...More

A variety of great glass and gifts to buy as a momento of being in Swaziland. Plus an opportunity to watch some glass blowing. Love the view of the mountains and rolling hills.

Did the touristy thing and went to Ngwenya glass. So beautiful. The products are varied, practical and also whimsy. Deciding on a few souvenir pieces proved to be difficult because everything was so lovely. A coffee shop on the premises.
