Can someone please confirm where the road/bridge closure is near Biyamiti? On the day we depart from Biyamiti, we planned to take the S25 to Crocodile Bridge or our way up to Lower Sabie. I'm thinking this is where the closure is, so that's not going to be possible. Is that correct? If so it looks like it will be quite a ways to get down to Croc Bridge and we may as well go straight to Lower Sabie. ??


The road was open when we were there a couple of weeks ago, so you should have no problems taking the S25 to Croc Bridge. We had some nice sitings along the S25 in both directions from the Biyamiti junction, so good luck!

All you Biyamiti fans, which NCO2+2V is the best one to stay in? And which is second best?

Hi DB,

the NCO2+2V in Biyamiti are all great with lovely views into the riverbed although for me No. 8 is our favourite as same is a bit more open and not overgrown by large trees and same is a bit closer to the hide. :dance: Disadvantage the braai is farer away from the bungalow than from the others.

No. 3, 4 + 5 are nevertheless lovely too. :thumbs_up:

Good Day All

I am looking for some advice and ideas please.

We are going on honeymoon in OCT to Byamiti for 4 nights. We visit the park reguarly but it is our first time to Biyamiti. I want make it more special then the usual normal visit.

I am planning on going on a Night Drive and maybe morning walk. Is there anything else that members can recommend we do that will make it extra special and feel like a honeymoon and not just a normal Kruger holiday?

Thank you

Congratulations!!!
Only my opinion but We much prefer the sunset drives over full night drives.
Have done both from Biyamiti and with the sunset drive you get the best of the day,sunset,then about 1 hour of night drive back.
Also explore the camp as the birding can be very good,and we have seen plenty of game in the riverbed ,including a leopard,from the fence.
The bush is thick in the area,but at least in October it should have died right back.We have never walked there,but have done plenty of times from other camps and can highly recommend it.
Have a great time,my favourite camp,there in July.

Hi everyone!! Does anyone know who the guide is that does the sunset drives from Biyamiti? Am going to be in Biyamiti from 22 May until 25 May and would like to do a drive from there. Would be interesting to know beforehand who the guide is and what the forumites' experience with him has been. Thanks!! :roll:

Hi Leander09, I think Biyamiti only has sunset drives but I prefer sunset to night drives anyway!

We did the sunset drive in Feb (there is no night drive) and we had a fabulous guide by the name of Simon who was the best guide we have ever had. His knowledge and humour made our drive an absolute highlight of our holiday!

Thanks Andrea! That is great news. Although all of the guides in KNP are good some just have that extra special personality traits that can make a drive extra memorable. Can't wait for our drive!

Dear all,

we will do our second Kruger trip this year in October 14. I can`t wait.
Last time in Feb/March 14 we were caught by the heavy rains and couldn`t visit all our booked Bushveld Camps. That was such a pitty.

Next Oct./Nov. I hope we will be lucky to enjoy again the beautiful bushveld camps. One of them will be Biyamti. We visited the camp a long long time ago. So I need a little help.
We have booked a Guest Cottage NGC5V , with a river view.
My question : Are all Guest Cottages are equipped with new furniture and curtains, are the bathrooms upgraded ?
I thought to follow your advice under the topic "best unit numbers" and ask for unit 7 or 1.
Someone else also recommended No. 9, but if you look onto the map of Biyamti the distance between 9 and the river looks quite far.
What would you suggest ?

Many thank in advance, greetings, Brigitte

:gflower:

I know this is random in the extreme but when you look at the map plan of accommodation layout at Biyama, and the image hasn't fully loaded and focussed, it looks like a lovely little row of cupcakes. :shock:

....quite makes me want to go there as I imagine the huts to be edible! :tongue:

Okay I'll step away now!

We have just visited Biyamiti and LOVED it. We had unit NO 1. Very private as it is next to the fence. not too far away from the front fence either. We were woken by a leopard one morning and the second night the only sound we could hear was an elephant eating. There are two bird baths in front of the cottage with loads of different birds visiting if you put water in. Two little gennets visited us each night. A very special place
