Dlinza Forest Accommodation is situated in the historical town of Eshowe in Zululand, KwaZulu-Natal. Eshowe is located1.5 hours from the city of Durban. A warm Zululand welcome awaits you, where Alan and Bev will be your hosts and where your comfort is a priority.
There are four unique, tastefully furnished self-catering, fully-equipped log cabins set in a tranquil garden bordering the Dlinza Forest, where abundant birdlife abounds. Each cabin consists of an open-plan kitchen, seating area and bedroom, with a bathroom leading off the main area. All cabins have a covered patio and barbecue facilities, and secure parking is available.
The edge of our garden is the beginning of the 250 hectare indigenous Dlinza Forest, one of the many beautiful forests in Zululand. The forest is easily accessible and is currently visited by birdwatchers from all over the world hoping to catch a glimpse of rare bird species, such as the Spotted Ground Thrush or the Eastern Bronze-naped Pigeon. The forest echoes with the calls of Trumpeter Hornbills, Purple-crested Turacos, and Narina Trogons - as does our garden.
The Dlinza Forest has an impressive 125 m aerial boardwalk, at an elevation of 10 m which allows visitors to walk right under the canopy of Dlinza’s indigenous scarp forest, culminating in a 20 m observation tower with breathtaking views. The walkway, which is wheelchair friendly, provides intimate access to 65 bird and 85 butterfly species, as well as to small mammals such as blue duiker, bush pigs, and bush babies.
Shakaland, famous for depicting Zulu culture, is in close proximity to Eshowe as well as various museums, battlefields, and the Phobane Dam for bass fishing. The Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park containing the Big 5 is also only an hour’s drive away, and Eshowe is situated 25 km inland from the warm Indian Ocean.
We offer a warm and friendly welcome and a peaceful place to stay and relax, away from the stress of daily life. Whether it is bird or butterfly watching, rambling through the forest, fishing at nearby dams, or if you just want to spend a quiet few days with your feet up, Dlinza Forest Accommodation is just the place for you. We are also an ideal stopover for the businessman as we are only 2 km from the centre of town.
