The famous Swazi Candle factory is a worthwhile visit as you can witness how craftsmen shape a variety of beautiful sculptures out of wax. Various other shops also offer a wide range of things including batiks, clothing, African crafts etc. There is also a quaint little coffee shop on site called Sambane”

“If you would like to see a bit of swazi culture I recommend solanis for lunch. It can get a bit too busy in the evening but lunch at a shisa nyama is a must for all meat eaters. Go with the flow, eat with your hands and enjoy Eswatini. ”

Lodging
“The breakfast lunch buffets are normally well-cooked, tasty, and plentiful. The food is always freshly prepared with great variety for all diets, including vegetarian choices. They do have an occasional off-day for lunch though. The casino is one of the only places to order real food after 10pm. E180 per person. However, I would not recommend staying at the hotel. ”
