We stopped at the weavers expecting to see many people working, but there were actually only two ladies weaving baskets right in to the store. Still, the baskets are of fine quality, and I was able to get colors here that I hadn't seen elsewhere....More

We were staying at the Zulu Nyala Heritage Safari Lodge and stop in to check it out. The pricing on the products were 30% cheaper and we had lunch at the cafe. The food was good.

Quaint little attraction just outside Hluhluwe that has unique souvenirs and trinkets from the area. The Fig Tree Cafe was also very good and a great place to grab a bite to eat.

This is one of the places in in the Hluhluwe area that is worth a visit. The best time is in the middle of the day as lunches are good ,tasty and interesting.The coffee shop does close at 16h00 so make sure to be early.

Ilala Weavers is a place that sells African handcrafted goodies, e.g. baskets, bowls, jewellery and much much more. Worth a visit if you looking for African curios for yourself or as a gift.
