Welcome to Phongolo
Situated in Northern Zululand, one of Phongolo Nature Reserve’s primary attractions is the popular sport of fishing, with an increasing number of visitors drawn here to put their skills against the legendary tiger fish. The reserve was originally proclaimed by Paul Kruger to prohibit hunting in the area, as there were concerns that the game populations were being decimated through uncontrolled hunting.
A large percentage of the area originally proclaimed, is now under water since the construction of the Phongolopoort Dam, which is the fourth largest dam in the South Africa. The reserve is 10 485 ha in extent.
