  • A lovely collection of Swazi souvenir shops. Swazi Candles are crafted with such skill and variety of colours, and their custom made natural soaps are wonderful. The restaurant & bar has a decent selection and its such a relaxing experience being there
  • We love going to Swazi Candles whenever we are in the Kingdom of eSwatini. The vendors are proud of their authentic Swazi products and sell quality curios and much more. There is a great restaurant to grab a bite to eat after walking through all the fantastic shops. Do not run through this great tourist attraction. Give yourself at least an hour to appreciate the friendliness of the Swazi people and the creative environment the vendors manage to create.
