Game reserves in the area include:
- Umfolozi Game Reserve
- Mkuzi Game Reserve
- Nduma Game Reserve
- Thembe Elephant park
- Pongolapoort Game reserve (which is on the eastern shore of the Jozini Dam).


The Tiger fishing tournament in 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 tigerfish are endemic. Although widespread and still common in certain areas like the Pongola river, tigerfish 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 gamefish and catching tigerfish 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 tigerfishing of a lifetime.
