Tidying his office and fishing room during the downtime, founder Jonathan Boulton came across a dusty old hard drive. On it he came across this clip he and his brother featured in many years back on Pongola. “Like the dusty hard drive, the drought took Pongola off our radars for three years and now we’re super excited to get back there, boats are being refitted as we speak and we’re beyond hopefull that we might be able to get back there come spring,” he says.

Oh, and about the firearm on his belt? “We were camping wild back then, totally different to how we access the dam (via lodge today)…” He says.  Check out our Pongola offering, here.
