About Shayamoya Tiger Fishing & Game Lodge

Shayamoya is a true gem offering genuine hospitality, unique settings with stunning panoramic views across the Pongolapoort Lake (also known as Jozini) Lebombo Mountains, and the Phongolo Nature Reserve. Our specialty is the challenging sport of tiger fishing, where the record is 8.3 kg; however we also offer game drives, boat cruises, elephant tracking and rhino and bush walks.Ten luxurious thatched chalets are individually situated with their own private viewing deck, en-suite wooden bathroom and enclosed outdoor showers that make the experience truly romantic. A central lodge accommodates the lounge, bar, cellar, sundeck, and the restaurant which serves scrumptious South African cuisine. The Blevin Family and their friendly staff will ensure you have a memorable and relaxing stay. Weddings and Honeymoons: Shayamoya Tiger Fishing and Game Lodge is a stunningly romantic venue with awesome views and private settings for the honeymooners. Your wedding can be hosted here too, with the marriage vows being done on our deck with the panoramic view in the background. We love having children share the bush experience but realize they need more to stay entertained thus, puzzles, building blocks, paints and colouring in sets are available and the kitchen makes play dough for your children to get creative. There is also a sandpit and DVD player in the boma.

              The highlight must be the customer service. Every staff member makes you feel welcome and at home from the moment you arrive. And nothing was ever too much hassle. The food was delicious. The view exceptional. Maxwell took us for our first Tiger fishing experience and he is a brilliant host and fisherman. Took care of my sons like they were his own.

              Absolutely wonderful place if you looking for peace and tranquillity. Staff are friendly and willing to go the extra mile for you. Food was divine and the foot and back massage even better. Highly recommend this place to all. Would love to go back.
