Tiger Fishing at Lake Jozini: Situated in Northern Zululand adjacent to Swaziland, the lake covers 16 000 hectares, with a river stretch of approx 5 km. Fishing takes place from boats as the shoreline is crowded with semi-submerged trees and not to mention the large population of hippos and crocodiles on the water.
