Pongolapoort Dam is a dam in South Africa in the Pongola River. The Dam was constructed at the eastern end of the narrow gorge separating the Lebombo and Ubombo ranges. It was established in 1973.
Pongolapoort dam, or Jozini Lake lies just outside the town of Pongola. Lake Jozini is no ordinary Lake. It is the only water in South Africa where you find the ferocious fighting tiger fish.
It also has the only houseboat in the country, The Shayamanzi. This is a wonderful way to cruise the lake and has breathtaking views over Pongola Game Reserve.
