We recently visited Eshowe, Ongoye and Mtunzini to do some birding and Dlinza Forest Accommodation as our base. Best choice ever. The accommodation is fantastic: clean, spacious and set in the most beautiful garden and within walking distance of the Dlinza Forest Arial Boardwalk. Our host Bev and Allan attended to our every need and even surprised our friend with a gift for her birthday. Thank you for making our stay unforgettable. We will definitely stay with you again!

We booked in at Dlinza Forest in November 2017. I however had a surprise visit from my sister from Johannesburg and needed to do an extra booking at short notice. The hostess was brilliant and assisted us immediately with the additional booking and in a friendly manner assured us that it was not a problem. On arrival it was like driving into a little heaven. We were warmly welcomed. The garden was breathtaking and with beautiful flowers. The hostess saw that we loved her garden and gave us slips of her plants to plant in our garden. The cabin was cosy and immaculate and had everything and more. The next morning we woke up with the sound of birds and the fresh forest smell. We had refreshments that were provided by our hostess. The Dlinza aerial board walk was right on our doorstep. In June 2018 we got invited to a wedding in Eshowe. At that stage all the lodges were getting fully booked for the wedding weekend. We were lucky to get in again. We booked the full weekend and it was like being home. Our hostess checked on us regularly to see if we were still fine. Our cabin got serviced every day. Our hostess went the extra mile as to shuttle us from the lodge to the wedding venue at no charge! It is always a lovely stay with the most friendly host and hostess. I will highly recommend Dlinza Forest to anyone that ever wants to stay over in Eshowe. It is just an amazing little heaven!!

We have visited Eshowe and its beautiful natural attractions on several occasions, and have always opted to stay at Dlinza Forest Accommodation; and will continue to do so. The comfortable, clean and affordable accommodation is just perfect to use as a base when exploring the nearby forests and other interesting places. Access to Ongoye, Dlinza and Nkandla Forests is easy from this perfect base. Anybody interested in birds, butterflies, plants and history will find a host of interesting and exciting things to do in and around Eshowe. Our hosts bev and Allan have always been kind and accommodating, but always respecting our privacy at the same time. We will certainly be back and will continue to tell our friends about this perfectly comfortable and affordable accommodation option in Eshowe. Keep it up!

I came to Eshowe to experience the aerial boardwalk and decided to stay at the Dlinza Forest Accomodation which is just a quick 400m walk from the attraction. Added benefit is that if you stay at this establishment you need only pay once for your entrance to the boardwalk. The accommodation is made up of 4 logcabins in a garden setting with undercover parking and braai facilities. The cabin is open plan and relatively spacious as far as selfcatering cabins go although I would be inclined to dispense with the dusty artifical flowers and would repair the crack in the wall behind the bed. Never before I have been called by an establishment and asked to arrive early as the host wanted to play club bowls at 9.30am. Just as well I had left Durban early and was able to get to Eshowe in time. Then to my dismay that evening I was called at 8.20pm to be reminded to pay the balance of the bill as the host would be leaving by 8.30am on Sunday morning. It was not as if I had forgotten that I needed to do that but considering that my host was neither seen nor heard of all day until his phonecall it made doing that necessary admin a little difficult. The establishment further only makes provision for cash or eft so ensure you are prepared. So instead of enjoying a leisurely morning, I got up early, washed up the dishes, made the bed and left by 7.00am because I did not feel very comfortable with a missing host whose own weekend agenda was more important than the business generated from paying guests. This coupled with the noise of passing trucks during the night spoiled my experience somewhat. I am sad to say that I will stay elsewhere the next time I go to Eshowe.

We were truly so upset that your time with us was not up to your expectations. We have taken your criticism to heart and have attended to the issues you raised. I have sent you a private email as well. I hope that when you do visit Eshowe you will let us apologize in person. Kind regards
