There are very few places in South Africa where you can fish for the elusive Tiger Fish, with Jozini being the southernmost point to do so. Unless you know how, catching this vicious predator can be challenging. This is why we booked our trip to Jozini with Tiger Hunters Tours and Safaris. We booked a 2-day trip, as a group of 7.
Philip was not only invaluable with his knowledge of catching Tiger Fish but he is also equipped with an intimate knowledge of Jozini Dam and the nature which surrounds it. Ever helpful to a fault, Philip was a fountain of knowledge. We owe him special thanks to going out of his way to ensure the ultimate fishing experience, including him being chased by a hippo to catch our bait, as well as covering for us when we broke a key in the door! (thanks again, Philip!). He really does go above and beyond. As well as helping one of our party to catch a 6.36kg monster!
If you are looking for a once-in-a-lifetime fishing experience, we highly recommend Tiger Hunters Tours and Safaris.

Tiger Hunters Tours and Safaris is a great choice for anyone who loves fishing and adventure. We spent a few days with Philip Van Wyk, who is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. He took us to some of the best spots for catching tiger fish, which are among the most exciting freshwater fish in the world. We caught several tiger fish, one of them weighing 6,36kg. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget. Philip also taught us some tips and tricks on how to use the right bait, tackle, and technique for tiger fishing. He also provided us with all the necessary equipment and safety measures. He was very professional and helpful throughout the trip.

The accommodation was also excellent. We stayed in a comfortable private bush lodge with a beautiful view surrounded by wild life.

I would definitely recommend Tiger Hunters Tours and Safaris to anglers who want to experience the thrill of tiger fishing. They offer professional and affordable fishing trips in South Africa, with experienced and friendly guides. They also have a website where you can find more information and book your trip online. You can also check out their Facebook page where you can see some photos and videos of their fishing adventures. If you are looking for a fun and memorable fishing trip, you should book with Tiger Hunters Tours and Safaris. You won't regret it.

Philip is a brilliant guide. Knows the dam 100%. We fished off anchor, drifted, trolled and threw spoons depending on what was most appropriate for the time. Lots of rain and brown water but still managed to get some good fish. Will go again for sure!

There is so much to say but not enough words, I have been on a lot of charters in SA as well as USA and these people are just at a different level, the service is amazing and they are on point, when it comes to the small things like checking in on a person the day be for arrival to make sure you are ready and to answer any last minute questions and even to find out how far you are and if everything is ok on the roads. They also look great after a person and you are not just another number in my case the weather really didn't play its part the one afternoon and they made a plan for us not to go out and waste our time but to go out the next day be for we left so that we can enjoy it and this coming from there side. It is really my top place for holidays from now on not just because of the charter but because there is things for different people like I love fish and not to crazy about watching animals but my wife is different so it's hard to keep both of us happy but now it's like why didn't I make this move sooner, the boat is amazing really no need to take anything but they don't mind you trying you own ideas and they help improve it to, and you do about 4 different types of fish the skipper really doesn't stop till there is fish on deck, the amount of knowledge that the skipper has is crazy can't be compared to and the place a person stays in is perfect for anyone just a example is the bedding is super clean and smells fresh so the amount of things you have to take is a lot less. I can go on and on but I don't think I would be able to find samething to be unhappy about even if I tried you guys are amazing at what you do.
