The wind blowing through the trees of the Zululand & Maputaland Dhlinza Forest is said to have inspired Eshowe's name, the 'city set on a hill', where Zulu Kings used to reside. Eshowe's Dhlinza Forest will delight visitors with wonderful walks and trails, and has the only aerial boardwalk in the Southern Hemisphere, from which one can commune with the birds, vervet monkeys, wild pigs, blue and red duikers, and bushbuck. Deep within the Dhlinza Forest is the Bishop's Seat, where one of the first Bishops of Eshowe would sit and plan his next sermon. Today, this spot is used by the town of Eshowe as a venue for their nativity play, which is staged there every three years. Wrapped around the lush green Dhlinza Forest, Eshowe is abundant with unequalled fauna, flora, bird life and butterflies, and endless views of the exquisite North Coast Zululand plain, sugar plantations and orchards.
While in Eshowe, a 'must visit' is the Vukani Museum, which houses some of the best examples of Zulu pottery, basketry, beadwork and tapestries, done by artists who have gone on to receive international recognition.
For the sporty person, the Eshowe Hills Golf Club boasts a challenging 18 hole par 72 golf course, 6 all-weather tennis courts, 2 squash courts, and a club house which has a wellness centre.
Eshowe is the Zululand & Maputaland town known to have a flower blooming in a tree every day of the year, and is the ideal base to visit the KwaZulu Natal Battlefields, North Coast beaches, Hluhluwe Umfolozi Big Five Game Reserve, the Zululand Birding Route and KZN Brew Route.
