Is there perhaps an email address that is active that I could try sending my request.
As we are there for 5 night's I really would like one of the chalet's with the view

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:

Honeymoon in Kruger, Biyamiti in Oct.

Unread postby leander09 » Mon Mar 03, 2014 9:05 am

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.

Would be interesting to know beforehand who the guide is and what the forumites' experience with him has been. Thanks!! :roll:


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!

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:
Next trip 2015 :dance:
14 - 17.09 Shimuvini, 17 - 20.09 Shingwe
20 - 23.09 Punda, 23- 26.09 Mopane
26 - 28.09. Olifants, 28.09 - 01.10 Satara
01 - 03.10 Talamati, 12 - 14.10 Skukuz
14 - 17.10 Biyamiti, 17 - 20.10 Lower Sabie
20 - 23.10 Berg & Dal

Biyamiti is certainly one of my favourite camps and I love Unit 15.
It has no view of the river but is all the way on the end and is surrounded by bush.
It even has a private little pathway that runs down to the fence overlooking the river.
Walking down this path with a few drinks in hand and sitting on some of our camping chairs in that little corner has been spectacular.
We have had Leopard, Lions patrolling, Lions killing buffalo and Elephants right in front of us not to mention all the general game.

As far as the renovations are concerned, we have stayed in almost every unit over the last 2 years and they are all well maintained.
Some are missing the new furniture.
To be honest it doesn't really matter as their camp manager is doing a great job and you know that whichever unit you get will be in good condition.

For the river view I also like number 1, as it too is on the end a a little more private.
Although on my last visit it was a bit overgrown and the river not so visible - I did not mind as I love the bush and privacy it affords.

Unfortunately we were evacuated in January 2013 from Biyamiti and then again in 2014. January and February are my personal favourite times to visit Kruger but I may reconsider and change that to November before the heavy rains hit.

Cannot wait for my next trip to Biyamiti!

Regards,

Sean

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

I would just like to complement the staff of Biyamiti. Especially Gordon Ramsden and Surprise Hlatshwayo.

We are always quick to point out the bad service including me but forget sometimes to acknowledge the good or great service.

The have helped me planned our honeymoon and even phoned me to finalize the arrangements. They have only be friendly and helpful from the time we started.

Can not wait to get their in October.

I would just like to congratulate Sanparks on these two staff members. They are really great.

Biyamiti is my favourite camp - love the peace & quiet &'the wildlife viewing you can do with the river right on your doorstep. Have sat & watched around 40 elephants feeding, playing &'mud bathing in the river; saw lions feeding on a kill right outside the perimeter fence. No need to go out of the camp to see wildlife. :)
