Tiger Fishing Excursion In South Africa

Tiger Fishing is truly exciting activity, which we offer to our guests staying in our Lodge. These ferocious fighting game fish are rare to South African waters however enjoy these sub tropical conditions. Good sizes have been caught in Lake Jozini (also known as Pongolapoort Lake) where the official record is 8.3 kg. The lodge has a good selection of fishing rods and tackle for hire, but bring your own fly rods and tackle. Fishing trips are enjoyed by sharing the trip with other guests. Alternatively contact reservations to arrange for exclusivity to which fees are charged.
