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. A visit to Ngwenya Glass represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Ngwenya online vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • Wonderful stuff from Ngwenya Glass Factory. We've bought many things here and often bringing visitors who love to see all the unique things they make.

There are also other craft shops here that are worth checking out, and a cafe that is surprisingly good.
  • A must-see Swazi attraction. Support our amazing recycling industries!
