Tiger Fishing on Lake Jozini
Lake Jozini has a remarkable Tiger Fish population, a fish known to reach in excess of 9 kg. This exclusively African game-fish strikes hard and fights aggressively, making this type of fishing a favourite among adrenaline seekers.
(Please note that it is illegal to catch tigers to eat and all fish are caught on a catch and release basis.)
With its 27 species of fish, Lake Jozini promises an excellent opportunity for passionate fishermen. Reputedly the best freshwater fighting fish in the world, the Tiger Fish poses a memorable challenge but please do check with us on the water level of Lake Jozini. Drought years may mean that the levels are too low to launch a boat.
If conditions are good, you’re welcome to bring your own boat, or book a charter.
The finest fishing months are March through May and August through November. Hone your fishing skills here at any time of the year, so that you can sign up for our Tiger Fishing Competition which is scheduled when lake levels permit. (Contact us for more details)
