Swazi Candles is a Large Place with Many Shops, a Restaurant, a Fantastic Coffee Shop, Amazing Markets and fantastic Candles of all sorts. I highly recommend any traveler to stop at Swazi Candles. Do spend the time watching Candle Makers creating their Artwork!!

Visited the candle workshop as a family group - 2 adults and 1 child. The process is interesting but it would be great to have someone explain the techniques and materials.

It is really just a shop - I was expecting to see and have explained the candle making process. There are a range of other tourist shops in the compound, but the prices are no different from town or the hotel.

I visited this place last year and still marvelled at the workmanship. Didn’t seem to be as wide a range though. Staff very friendly. Have a look.
