Pongolapoort Dam commonly known as Lake Jozini

Situated within KwaZulu Natal, approximately 280 km North of Durban. The dam was constructed in 1973 separating the Lebombo and Ubombo mountains. The Dam's primary purpose is for irrigation and the Phongola River is the largest feeder into the dam.

Prior to the construction of the Pongola Dam (Jozini), the area was Africa's first formally recognized conservation area. The Pongola Game Reserve was proclaimed in 1894 by president Paul Kruger and this would ultimately lead to the proclamation of areas such as the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park, Mkuze Game Reserve as well as Ndumo Game Reserve.

The dam offers numerous private wildlife reserves on its flanks, the area is well known for its Tiger fishing one of two areas within South Africa.
