Shayamanzi I - Tigerfishing

Free Cancellation
AFRICAN HOUSEBOAT EXPERIENCE Experience the first Houseboats on the lake – the only ones of their kind. On-board Shayamanzi Houseboats you can 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 can only be truly appreciated from the vantage point of a houseboat and the Shayamanzi rivals any first-class hotel on the water. The major benefit of being on the Lake is that you are right on top of the best fishing spots, so literally within minutes; your fly can be attracting the attention of the striped water dog. This is without a doubt the finest houseboat operation in South Africa that is ideally suited for fly-fishing groups and their spouses. Last-minute bookings accepted depending on availability. Looking for a bigger houseboat (max 20 guests), check out our Shayamanzi II option.
