Matsapha

Matsapha is Swaziland’s industrial heartland close to the town of Manzini, its sprawl of development continuing unborken to the larger town. The route from Manzini to Matsapha is along the MR3 highway and you cannot miss the vast industrial area on the left with its factories, warehouses and shopping centres.
 Leave the highway at the industrial site (do not take the flyover) and at the roundabout, branch to the left and travel along road until you reach the quarry. There is a 
turning to the left and signage will
 take you to the unique Summerfield Botanical Gardens. This comprises a restaurant and luxurious accommodation set in amazing grounds with water features, lifelike model animals and a profusion of exotic and indigenous trees and shrubs, including protected ancient cycads.

The industrial estate of Matsapha grew up in the 1960s, starting with a cardboard box factory. Today its labyrinth of factories, warehouses and offices is home to such big hitters as Conco, the Coca Cola concentrate plant; and Fashion International, a garment manufacturer that employs over 1,250 people. Other notable industries include Macmillan Swaziland, the country’s leading publisher and supplier of school textbooks; and Swaziland Beverages, which produces local soft drinks and beers. A railway terminus at the heart of the estate provides a southeast freight link on Swaziland Railways to the Maputo and Durban/Richard’s Bay lines.
