Shayamanzi House Boat smaller

Shayamanzi House Boats : Lake Jozini KwaZulu Natal

Experience the first Houseboats in South Africa – the only ones of their kind. Onboard Shayamanzi Houseboats, soak up the stunning scenery of the Lebombo Mountains and superb wildlife of the Pongola Game Reserve on the shores of Lake Jozini (also known as Pongolapoort Dam). Enjoy the calm serenity of the open Lake Jozini waters, the thrill of Tiger Fishing or the adventure of Mountain Biking in the heart of the Zululand bushveld! Shayamanzi is about taking time out to appreciate Africa’s special wonders.

Lake Jozini is the only water in South Africa where you find the ferocious, fighting Tiger Fish, an African game fish that thrills you as it jumps out the water, throwing its head from side to side trying to get off your line. Tackle and rods are available

The guide dresses your trace up with a fish you would have been glad to have caught back home and calls it “bait”. You ask him what size Tiger Fish he’s expecting to eat that, and he replies with a dead pan face “Don’t worry we’ll try for the larger ones this afternoon.”  Contact Green Rhino for package specials and prices.  These Houseboats are ideal for a group of family or friends.
