About Dlinza Forest Accommodation

Dlinza Forest Accommodation is situated in the historical town of Eshowe in Zululand, KwaZulu Natal. Eshowe is 1 hours from the city of Durban. A warm Zululand welcome awaits you; Alan and Bev will be your hosts and your comfort is our priority.

Self Catering Log Cabins

There are four unique, tastefully furnished fully equipped self catering log cabins, set in a tranquil garden bordering the Dlinza Forest, where abundant bird life is ideal for bird watching.

Each cabin consists of an open plan kitchen, seating area and bedroom, with a bathroom leading off the main area (sleeps maximum of two adults and two children). All cabins have a covered patio and braai (BBQ) facilities. All cabins have a DStv package and there is secure parking.

The Dlinza Forest

The edge of our garden is the beginning of the 250 ha 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 (Zoothera guttata) or the Eastern Bronze-naped Pigeon (Columba delegorguei).

The forest echoes with the calls of Trumpeter Hornbills, Purple-crested Turacos (Purple-crested Lourie) and Narina Trogons (as does our garden). For a nominal fee, forest walks are only 200m away.

Dlinza Forest Aerial Boardwalk

The Dlinza Forest has an impressive 125 metre aerial boardwalk, at an elevation of 10 metres which allows visitors to walk right under the canopy of Dlinza's indigenous scarp forest and culminates in a 20 metre observation tower with a breathtaking view. 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 (Bass Fishing). The Hluhluwe / Umfolozi Park, containing the Big Five, is also only one hour's drive away. Eshowe is situated 25 km inland from the warm Indian Ocean.
