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.

If you are passing through Swaziland don't miss this treasure. You can watch them from above blowing glass treasures. Then of course there is a sales shop. A lot of variety but I loved the Giraffe and even though there were no big Zebras there...More

Ngwenya glass is a must on the tour route through Swaziland. The cafe is very simple and food very average but a nice afternoon out.
