Experience how the breeze cools you as it blows gently off the great lake up the ridge or join us for one of our speciality Tiger Fishing excursions where the thrill of fighting one of these rare ferocious game ...Morefish is simply invigorating. A truly unique bush lodge in Northern KwaZulu Natal where the view from the spectacular setting is particularly breath-taking as you gaze out onto Lake Jozini, the Lebombo Mountains and the Pongola Game Reserves. Privately managed by the Blevin family who have lived in the area for many years, Shayamoya exudes a warm and friendly atmosphere. Less

Located at the very summit of a mountain, this establishment offers first class food, accommodation, game viewing and Tiger Fishing.
A family owned and run business, which is quite evident by the high standards throughout.
A fantastic place to hide from the world. Peaceful and tranquil with excellent staff, food and facilities. The indigenous gardens woven into the bush are a treat, with beautiful bird life all around. A real gem for a dusty traveler or a couple wanting respite...More

Hi Hayley, sorry for delay in my reply. I prefer March or April when the water has had time to filter some more after the rains (which hopefully we will have lots of). It is tough fishing in discoloured water. Hope that helps.

Hi there! October is a brilliant month! The tiger fish come on the bight about mid August as the water warms up after Winter, September is also a brilliant month but a little unpredictable with regards to cold fronts, so October is great, but expect rain showers in the late afternoon. Email Nomvula in Reservations to book your dates.
Hope to see you then.
