Swaziland has a rich history, and provides a myriad of activities to suit each individual preference. But there is so much more to explore! Shops such as Traditional Swazi Craft Markets will definitely appeal to all. There are two traditional Swazi...more
Take the time to start at one end and walk through visiting all the vendors. Many have similar items, but then you'll find a hard-carved wooden animal, unique jewelry, beautiful African beads and even aprons I'd not seen anyplace else. The vendors need your support,...More
Not a lot of variation among the shops. Each shopkeeper insists she/he has made all the goods in their shop. Difficult to believe since each shop has very few unique items. I like the guy who carves soapstone figures while you watch. I believe him....More
