Dlinza Forest Accommodation is situated in the historical town of Eshowe in Zululand, KwaZulu-Natal. It is located 1.5 hours away from the city of Durban. The accommodation offers a warm Zululand welcome, where Alan and Bev are the hosts, and the comfort of guests is a priority.

There are four unique, tastefully furnished self-catering, fully-equipped log cabins set in a tranquil garden bordering the Dlinza Forest, which is home to abundant birdlife. 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 the 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 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 the garden.

The Dlinza Forest has an impressive 125-meter aerial boardwalk at an elevation of 10 meters, allowing visitors to walk right under the canopy of Dlinza's indigenous scarp forest, culminating in a 20-meter observation tower with breathtaking views. The wheelchair-friendly walkway provides intimate access to 65 bird and 85 butterfly species, as well as 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 kilometers inland from the warm Indian Ocean.

Dlinza Forest Accommodation offers 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 simply spending a quiet few days with your feet up, Dlinza Forest Accommodation is the ideal choice. It is also an ideal stopover for businessmen, as it is only 2 kilometers from the center of town. The accommodation offers self-catering log cabins sleeping a maximum of two adults and two children.
