Wow Freda , that's an awesome shot! Looks like he's almost in your car or you were leopard crawling on your belly to get him so close :)

When I was there, he was hiding in the reeds not letting me get a shot :(

Hi,

I've read many good things about the Biyamiti Weir but am not certain exactly where it is? is it on the Biyamiti PVT road? If so, where?

Thanks

It is not actually on the pvt road Dave. I do not have a map with me, but if you travel north from the western end of the pvt road, it is about 1 km from there, crossing the B river.

It's on the S114 just north on the 18km pvt road to Byamiti. It can also be accessed via the S26.

Beautifull scenery, but I have not seen much activity in the area (even on nightdrive).

Close up on the road below the Biyamiti weir wall - I coasted along with the engine turned off - the elepphant was happy with my presence about 5 metres away , then I had to move as an impatient tourist driving a clattering diesel engined Isuzu LDV arrived behind my car at the single lane roadway and would not wait a while longer for me to enjoy the wonderful experience ... of course the elephant left when I started the car - I actually doubt if it would have stayed around with the racket - I would not have .
Why are some people so inconsiderate in idling noisy vehicles at a great sighting like this ... ?

What a beautiful photo Ndloti! Very nice close up and from a very nice angle!

I must admit I also drive a diesel, at least mine is one of the more quiet types and I also switch my engine off when I get to a sighting.

Keep those nice photos coming! :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

I will be staying in Biyamiti Camp (a long awaited dream) in late December 2010 and I would really like to get there from Skukuza via the Biyamiti Weir but I drive a sedan (and like most sedans these days it has low clearance). As this is a summer rainfall area what are the chances of being able to cross? In April this year I wanted to visit Shipandani Hide but couldn't get across the low water bridge as there had only been been a little rain the previous night.

I am very wary of even a few inches of water ruining my holiday - my first ever in summer at Kruger (always been in winter or later summer). Some advice from the experienced summer visitors, please?

Thanks

I pnm :) We have been to Biyamiti in December and even though we have an SUV I think a sedan would do just fine... But then again, it obviously depends how much rain they have - the big rains hadn't come when we were there. Holding thumbs that it'll be ok for you!! :thumbs_up: Have an amazing time!!

Here are some pics taken at the Biyamiti weir - one of my favourite spots in kruger! :D
