Birding in Biyamiti

The parks’ 5 bushveld camps all offer superb birding opportunity. Camps in general attract a boon of birds.

They are all well foliaged and usually next to water-courses. The advantage of the bushveld camps is that there are less other visitors to scare things off. All of these camps have hides or viewing platforms that further enhance birding. Some of the specials associated with this camp are:

Biyamiti: Great for Woodland birds – good place to see African Barred Owlet and Retz’s (Red-billed) Helmet-shrike.
