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

We are looking at staying in a NCO2+2V, 2 adults and small (toddler) children. Is there enough space? Has anyone done it before? From the pictures on the web it appears to have a verandah and an open plan kitchen?

Any feedback will be great

Thanks

We stayed in one of those a few years ago. Our kids were early teens then. Its a bit crowded, but not too bad. We were comfotable enough therre and spent most of our "in-camp " time on the verandah. If thats whats available I would take it again,although the bigger cottages are more spacious with small kids you should be fine

The NCO2+2V is basically a bedroom, bathroom and a lounge (with sleep-on couches in the lounge). The kitchen is on the verandah, along with a four-seater table.

We stayed in one with our son, CB, who was just 5 at the time, and it worked fine. Like Pjw, we spent most of our time on the verandah. Works perfectly in summer.

CB loved Biyamiti - the birds, the small mammals, being able to see ellies and bushbuck from the fence, the little hide... great place for a kid who is happy in nature. And SO and I adore it!
