The game viewing in the Reserve offers sightings of four out of the Big Five. We are often spoilt with sightings of the elephant swimming and playing in the dam. We have plenty of aardvark activity at night – they love scratching and digging up our airfield for ants.

Tandweni Villa Gamedrives

Your own private GAME DRIVE in Pongola Biosphere Reserve!

We offer a short game drive in Pongola Game Reserve, which is a Big 4 Reserve, to the most beautiful sunset spot where the kids can barbel fish with Jabulani, while you take in the beautiful scenery of kingfishers fishing, hippos calling in the distance, and the golden African sun setting over the distant hills.

Game Drives and late night Aardvark drives

We are in a big 4 Game Reserve and the drives through the reserve are beautiful! We stop at a magical spot for a coffee break along the way. We have a lot of Aardvark and nocturnal activity in the area so for those feeling up to it, we offer a late night game drive too.

Incredible TIGER FISHING & BOAT CRUISES on Jozini Dam!

Jabulani has been tiger fishing on Jozini Dam for over 10 years and he has plenty secret fishing spots to try your luck at. The tiger fishing season is in the warmer months November – April. However, we do catch smaller tigers all year round.

We often see the elephants and buffalo on the waters edge, along with hundreds of different bird species. The boat cruise is truly a very unique experience not to be missed.
