Eshowe is the oldest town of European settlement in Zululand. Eshowe’s name is said to be inspired by the sound of wind blowing through the more than 4 km² of the indigenous Dlinza Forest, the most important and striking feature of the town. Although the name is most likely to be derived from the Zulu word for the Xysmalobium shrubs, showe or shongwe.
Eshowe is the ideal base to discover the Zululand Birding Route, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park at St Lucia, the game reserves of Northern Zululand and the Battlefields of the Anglo-Zulu war.
