Ngwenya Glass, Ngwenya

At Ngwenya Glass, you can observe skilled glassblowers using recycled glass to create animal figurines and dishware with African themes. The factory started out as a Swedish aid project that attempted to motivate unemployed young people by getting them interested in the art of glass blowing. Today, the business is owned by an unusual group of entrepreneurs--a farmer, an ex-librarian and a marine engineer. Amenities include a cafe, a chocolate shop, and a kids’ play area in the garden. Ngwenya Glass is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.

  • Glass factory is amazing. Love that they show you how they make the glass and ornaments. Small shops around gives tourist vibe. Very nice chocolate shop and other bits and bobs. Peacocks roaming around gives it a peaceful atmosphere. Glass bit pricy fir local shopping. Little restaurants serves amazing food. Milkshakes just took too long and waiter confuzed orders with other tables.
  • Had lunch here, delicious meals at a nice location (inside or at terrace under a roof) accompanied by several peacocks walking around outside.
