Nestled within the breathtaking expanse of the Pongola Game Reserve lies Nkonkoni Fishing Camp, an idyllic retreat in the heart of the Pongolapoort Biosphere. Our camp offers an unparalleled experience for avid anglers seeking the thrill of fishing amidst stunning natural surroundings.

Unveiling the Pongolapoort Dam Fishing Experience

Spanning approximately 16,000 hectares, the Pongolapoort Dam boasts a river stretch of around 5 kilometers. Here, the tigerfish population has steadily flourished, with noteworthy specimens emerging since the early nineties. In 1998, an impressive 8.3kg tigerfish was caught, and sizes ranging from 5 to 7kg continue to be reeled in. While the average size remains under a kilo, it's entirely plausible to encounter specimens reaching up to 4kg within a three-day fishing excursion.

The challenge of engaging these tigers never wanes, whether it's their tough bony jaws, formidable teeth, sheer cunning, or the remote locales they inhabit. Their astounding ability to strike a lure/bait and their typical attack ratio of 4:1 make tigerfish an electrifying catch. These remarkable fish approach from the side, deftly turn the bait, and then swallow it headfirst.
