Quick question : We have booked 1 of the cottages at Biyamiti. If it says C04 and has 2single and 2 bench beds and is therefore one of the five smaller units does this mean according to the map at the start of this thread it will be one of 3,4,5,8,or 10 ? If so it will hopefully mean we have a better chance of getting a good view if the email addresses don't return !


Indeed CO4 represents the smaller bangalows at Biyamiti, and as for the view, all the units there have got a view.

Good day William and Baz

The nrs for The CO4 are indeed 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 - however they do not all have views.
All the cottages from #10 onwards have virtually no view - situated further away from the river and having bush in front of them.
The bests views are in order of preference 7, 6, 9, 2, 1, (11-15 none) for the GC5 and 8, 5, 4, 3, (10 none) for the CO4.

We stayed in 161 in Satara which I would recommend you are semi private, and noticed 167 looks like a nice one as well, these two are the closest to the perimeter (only two bed though).
At Letaba we stayed in 64 also very private.
I must mention we requested the specific bungalows well in advance and was fortunate to get them.

Katja it is a 3 bed bungalow.

Location: In a very busy place
So here is my list.

@ Punda Maria .. we stayed in Tent 3 ...
However, Tent 2 looks almost better.
Very nice Tent with all the luxuries of a bungalow, 2 beds, toilet, shower and cupboard space, outside kitchen with utensils.
Has a roof fan.

@ Shingwedzi,
we stayed in Bungalow 62 in Block B.
Right next to the ablution.
Not much traffic as I would have thought.
Close to camp kitchen.
Note: when staying in Shingwedzi, the monkeys have learned to open the fridge.
They have made accomodation for this so that you can turn the fridge around.
I think this bungalow is great as it's close to all things except the shop, but close to the pool .. which is great. 3 Beds.

@ Letaba,
we stayed in Safari Tent 20 as most recommended, only have number 19 and 18 as close neighbours. Excellent except that it's far from everything, ablution, kitchen etc.
But nice and secluded.
Note: Outside lights are also on the board on the inside of the tent.
Only found that the night before we left.
Also, when it rains the tent does leak water.
Still great tent, normal stand fan in the tent.
Which works better then the roof fan actually.
Also, your parking is not in the same area as the other safari tents parking, you enter from the other side. 2 Beds

@ Satara, we stayed in Bungalow A1 ... excellent location if you don't intend staying there long.
Nice big parking, close to kitchen, has own toilet and shower, aircon (what a blessing that was).
Easy access to gate, reception etc.
View is excellent with nice birds on the lawn in front. 3 Beds.

@ Skukuza,
Bungalow 160 ...
Same layout as Satara bungalow with aircon, toilet, shower but has the mesh?? in front of the patio, so no bugs to bother you.
Problem is with the parking, you have to share and if the idiot next to you parks like a P@##Pol, then you can't park there like I had to.
Move to Bungalow 195 after 2 days ...
Great move!!!
Same layout as Bungalow 160 but huge parking for vehicle and private.
No neighbours on right and in front of you is the guest house which is rarely occupied and the Old Museum Hut.
Close to the river, shops, kitchen, restaurant, swimming pool etc. 3 beds.

Hope this helps anyone ...

We stayed in tent N°2 and our friend in N°3. The view from N°2 is more opened , but the deck is smaller. I also had a look at N°1. My favorite is definitly N°2.
We really enjoyed our stay in Punda.

Here's a photo taken 3 steps in front of the of no. 32, which we stayed in during our trip to Letaba in January. Surprisingly the restaurant area was very quiet and peaceful during our stay. The view is wonderful and waking up to hippo's grunting is always a lovely feeling in the mornings.

luislang, I have stayed in these units before as well. The information for these huts is as follows:

Hut (EA3U)
- 3 single beds
- Aircon
- Basin
- Communal ablutions
- Communal Kitchen
- Fridge
- No utensils
- Perimeter
(Taken from Letaba 'Accommodation Availability')

They're absolutely great. :D They are all located very close to the ablution facilities and excellent value for money, unless you prefer having your own kitchen and bathroom.

The view is to die for, but then again it's my favourite camp. :D

LL, I agree with you. These huts are really good value for money. They actually have better views as the so-called perimeter bungalows.
We have stayed in # 32 and # 33. The ablution block is right behind these units.

I have a reservation for a 3 bed hut (BE3) with sink,utensils etc.in Skukuza.
Does anybody have a favourite hut number for this type of accommodation?
I find the experience of the forum members immensely helpful .

W@H recommends no 195 on the previous page. You can have a look on the camp map to see its location.
