Eshowe is an old town that was settled by the Europeans in Zululand. It is the oldest town in the region and is named for the sound of the wind through the nearby forest of Dlinza, which is one of the most attractive places to visit in town. It is a beautiful little town with quaint architecture, affordable hostels, friendly people, and a lot to do.

Visit Made at Home while you are in Eshowe. It is a fun place to go in the city. Made at Home is a marketplace in Eshowe where no processed food or store bought items are allowed. Only homemade, handcrafted, and homegrown things are sold here, from the tomatoes to the baked goods. Try out a Koeksister, which is a huge, flavored muffin, and some of the freshest homemade bread in the region. The market is only open on Saturdays, so make sure your visit coincides with the weekend and that your hostel is in close proximity to the market itself.

If you are in the mood for a hearty meal in Eshowe outside your hostel, check out the Adams Outpost Restaurant and Tea Garden, one of the many small restaurants in the city. This restaurant has a storied history dating back to the late 19th century. It was built by a famous person named Alfred Adams, one of the original European settlers in the region, as a homestead. Commonly visited by powerful people, like Prince Edward, visiting the nearby town, this humble restaurant is fun, has a lot to see, and has delicious food to try.

Dlinza Forest is another place you have to see in Eshowe. It is one of the greenest parts of the region, and the aerial boardwalk is one of the best activities here. Reaching out to a distance of 130 meters, and located ten meters above the ground, you can walk the boardwalk all the way to the viewing platform at the end. It is here that the best scenery for miles around can be viewed and photographed.
