Create an itinerary including Ngwenya Glass
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.

  • Amazing service from the whole Ngwenya Glass team that were able to pull off a special order of 12 wine glasses for a very special occasion. Particular thanks to Stella who managed it all for us. We will cherish our memories of Eswatini and southern Africa !
  • I would just like to say that I am super happy with my purchase. They are beautifully made and not thin glass. I definitely recommend for someone wanting something a bit different to what’s on the market.
  • Thanks always great to visit. Try go on a working day and watch the guys molding /blowing the glass. Great for gifts for friends and family. Thanks
  • Ngwenya glass is a true gem in Eswatini. Beautifully hand crafted glasses and other pieces of art. The prices are a bit steep for us locals but still worth each item since everything is hand crafted and Ngwenya glass and their revenue supports many members of the local community. Definitely check in with them before you visit so that you can schedule to come on a working day. Many other local fair trade shops on the property.
  • Loved visiting Swaziland for the first time ever, the Ngwenya Glass factory is located straight after the border and is a very interesting and beautiful place. There is a restaurant at the Glass factory too…
