The tiger fishing tournament held annually in September/October draws anglers from around the world. This is South Africa’s own Kariba.
Lake Jozini in the Pongola Game Reserve is the most Southern lake where tiger fish are endemic. Although widespread and still common in certain areas like the Pongola river, tiger fish are declining in most rivers due to pollution, water extraction and obstructions like weirs and dams that prevent their passage up or downstream to suitable spawning sites along flooded river banks and lake shores. The tiger fish is one of the most exciting fresh water game fish , catching them will have your adrenalin flowing. Recognised by the bluish sheen on its back, a series of parallel longitudinal black stripes, intensive yellow to blood red fins with trailing black edges and a series of 8 large, protruding, sharply pointed teeth. From the novice fisherman to the expert anglers fishing with a fly, Lake Jozini offers you the ideal location for tiger fishing of a lifetime.
