Beautiful!
Feb 2020
A beautiful oasis in Eshowe. The aerial walkway is great, and gives a unique view into the forest, especially the upper reaches. Fantastic bird life, and the plant life is stupendous. Lots of orchids. Gives a new perspective on the region and native plant life.

Choose a trail....
Feb 2020
A must if you are in the area, worth taking a guided trail so that you can be informed about the good things you see in nature. Also do the "top of the forest" a steel structure that gives you a bird's eye view. Carry cash for the entrance fee there was no card/visa machine available to pay electronically. Use comfortable shoes as the trail can get very steep and in some area's very slippery.

Orchid hunting
Feb 2020
Well maintained, tidy facility with easy access for most. Staff very friendly and helpful. We went as a group mainly to look at orchids and some into birds. Lots of other special things to see if one takes time to really look. Chameleons and frogs

Nature at its BEST!
Oct 2019
Beautiful place with a lot of trees, being in Dlinza forest will make you feel so small in a good way, you feel so indulged just by being surrounded by nature and all you hear is the sound of chirping birds in their natural habitat.

Beautiful trails through natural forest
Dec 2019 • Couples
My third visit to Dlinza. What a wonderful community initiative. It is accessible with a normal vehicle, giving people without 4x4s the opportunity to experience a forest like Ongoye as well. There are trails through the forest (1.3 and 1.8km) with many trees marked and described in detail. The aerial boardwalk allows you to see the canopy as well, and the lookout tower has an impressive view. The picnic spot is also picturesque. Payment by cash or Zapper, not card.

Wonderful forest
Sep 2019
This forest in the town is a haven for birds. The aerial boardwalk is a must see in this town. There are also numerous other trails in the forest. Imagine the Zulus hiding their wives, and even an army in the forest during attacks.

Totally enchanting and magical
Jun 2019 • Friends
What a special place this forest is. It feels ancient and very mystical. We loved doing our walking meditation in it and having a picnic breakfast at the top of the boardwalk. The birds are magnificent; in fact the Turaco and Hornbill fit perfectly in this magical theme as they are so unusual and beautiful. As my friend says, the Turacos are like avatars!

It’s a very special place and I am delighted that it has been preserved for future generations to enjoy.

Definitely worth the visit!

Walking Through Eshowe Dhinza Forest to Aerial Boardwalk
Dec 2018 • Family
Boxing Day we chose to walk our 7 grandsons
Through the Dhlinzq Forest and then visited the Aerial Boardwalk . What a beautiful walk and educational for the boys . Many many trees are signposted with write ups on the name of the tree . We witnessed a small duiker and photographer it . We visited the Boardwalk and sat up on the top highest level 20 m up I think . Gee it is high !! We looked at the view towards Entumeni . We then visited the office who sold us all ice creams and cool-drinks .
