Tzaneen Dam

Tzaneen Dam is a 2100 acre water and is situated approximately 5 hours from Johhanesburg

The water is in the heart of the tropical region of South Africa and is surrounded by tea, banana and fruit plantations.

To access some of the banks we drive a few hundred metres through a fruit plantation, however some areas we fish we travel several kilometres through dense mature eucalyptus forests.

On a recent 7 day trip, 83 fish were landed, 35lb being the average weight of each fish but several were knocking on the door of forty pounds.

Every fish in Tzaneen is a winner with a even spread of mirrors and commons with long, short, fat and lean all being present. These fish are some of the best in the world.

Local fisherman have caught fish well in excess of 50 lbs and the lake record standing at 62lb.

This venue can not help but please and hook both the pro angler and the novice, and has awesome potential and will a top world venue very soon. So don’t delay come and do some pioneering before they all come.

Accommodation is in a bivvy, however some anglers may want to stay at the nearby guest house on the day of arrival or departure. Below are some pictures of the Guest House.
