WHO WE ARE?

Nandoni Fish Eagle lies just outside of Thohoyandou in Limpopo Province next to Nandoni Dam. The dam was completed in 2004 and already has a healthy population of big largemouth bass. It has absolutely great structure in the form of trees, sunken houses etc, which makes for some awesome fishing.

Nandoni Dam (Nandoni meaning “the iron smelting ovens” in Venda language), previously known as the Mutoti Dam, is an eart-fill/concrete type dam in Limpopo province, South Africa. It is located on the Luvuvhu River near the villages of ha-Mutoti and ha-Budeli just a few kilometres from Thohoyandou in the district of Vhembe.

The Luvuvhu river follows a course along the southern edge of the Zoutpansberg and eventually joins the Limpopo River in the far northern corner of the Kruger National Park on the border between South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.

Serious droughts during the early 1990s, when numerous boreholes in Venda and Gazankulu failed and consequently drinking water had to be delivered by tankers, led the Department of Water Affairs to investigate the feasibility of providing a steady water supply to the region. The Nandoni Dam supplies water to several places in the region. Fishing in the dam attracts tourists, the main species being fished for are Largemouth bass and kurper.
