The glass factory is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed watching a very talented glass blower show off his skills. The mini stalls were great and reasonably priced and we loved our lunch.

Amazing glass factory if you looking for a present ornaments and even to get a broken glass vase fixed. Watching a demonstration of glass flowers being made was fascinating. Recommended.

We stopped for a quick lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the menu. Items like Beef & Onion Pie etc. I would recommend you book a table as they are very busy.

Great stop over here on our Swaziland adventures. You can see the people working with glass from a viewing floor. The shop has a huge selection and the products are beautiful!
