The Kingdom of Eswatini


Every visitor to Eswatini should at very least do a little shopping before they leave. With various craft outlets, there’s something for everyone. The Ezulwini Valley in particular offers a wealth of options for that quintessential Swazi gift. At the Ezulwini Craft Market – Eswatini’s largest, with some 126 different stalls – you will find everything from wooden carvings, plates and beadwork to jewellery, textiles and traditional garments. The Mantenga Craft and Lifestyle Centre nearby offers similar fare, plus an opportunity to nip round the back and watch the artists in action. African Queen, an upmarket gift shop set in the Royal Swazi complex, stocks local crafts, including pottery and jewellery, plus an excellent selection of books. Gables provides standard ‘mall shops’. Swazi Candles Complex has debatably the largest collection of candles you will find in Africa! Along side the candle shop, there are other craft and boutique stalls for you to browse.
