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
You must stop at this market just to have a look around. All the stall holders want you to come and see their shops, pretty much all laid out with the same questionable hand made produce! Saying that they are all really friendly and take...More
