Stephen posted this one a little while ago:

The first photo was taken from the place where the wave comes up again. Amazing what a little water can do to change a view.

Hallo Baz

Our evening drives leave at 17:00 in winter time and last for about 3 hours. Yes alternatively one can do either a morning walk or morning drive from the camp as well. These are about 4 hours in duration and leave at 06:00 and 05:00 respectively. Please give me a pm for bookings to make sure you do not miss out.

Warm regards :D

It was mentioned that units 1-9 are the "better units" as they all have river views. I see that there are two accommodation types listed namely: Cottages (5 units – code CO2+2) and Guest Cottages (10 units – code GC5).

My question is: Do only the Guest Cottages have river view or are there some of the Cotagges with river view?

Francoisd if you go for the cottages (smaller ones) Stephen said that the order of best views are no's 8, 5, 3, 2 & 1. Going there in 3 weeks will send you some pics.


Hi Luislang

# 1 & 2 definitely has nice views….especially # 1. But these 2 are Guest Cottages (big units).
It would be great if you can get more pics of the units to add to this thread. I’m sure it helps people who are planning trips to Biyamiti.
Cottage # 8 is a great unit (hope it works out that you guys get it :wink: ). The unit is actually quite private. I once stayed in this unit alone for 2 nights…was writing exams in Malelane. The first night, while trying to study, I heard the leopard for quite some time, very close in the riverbed….constantly swapped between my study books and the spotlight. :lol:
Have a fantastic time Luislang!

Are pots/pans, utinsils, bowls/plates in the Biyamiti Cottages?

Anything we need to bring with us or buy on our way if we're staying at Biyamiti for 3 days?

Everything you need is there, just take your food and drinks.
Have a great trip :)


And firewood.

Biyamiti and its surrounds have always been productive, and interestingly one of the few camps where i have frequently heard the rasping call of the resident leopard :mrgreen:

Muhammad, in my book Dictionary of Kruger names, it gives it as BIYAMITI, the Tsonga word meaning "where barricades had to be erected around dwelling places" derived from ku biya - to make a barricade and miti - huts and dwellings.

Previous names and/or spellings include, Embeamede, Embeamiti, Jans River, Mbeamidi, Mbilamizi, Mbiyamiti, Pretorius, and Pretorius River, and Veldkraalspruit. :shock:

But the last previous spelling seems to be Mbyamiti. and now Biyamiti. unless its changed again which I guess with its changeable history could always a possibility. :wink: :D

hi all. I would just like to find out if the NCO2+2 accommodation has a shower in the bathroom. In the accomodation description it says wc and bath. Now does that mean there is a shower and a bath or does it mean that there is just a bath?

Thanks.


there is actually a shower inside the bath :D
