The area is beautiful and the views are nice. The animal sightings were rather sparse. The closer we got to Lower Sabie the more active the wildlife became. It was our second time at Biyamiti, first time just over 2 years ago. Back then it was nice, now we were rather shocked and don’t know what the hype on TA... More

We enjoyed 2 nights at this smaller bush camp. There were several highlights: 1) More and more groups of elephant gathered along the watercourse in front of the bush camp. By sunset there were more than 55 elephant, from 3 month olds to the matriarch and a big bull. 2) An early morning guided safari walk. We saw Spotted Hyena... More

While I think overseas visitors should try both the larger camps and more intimate "bush camps" like Biyamiti, I personally prefer the bush camps. They just feel more natural and "more African." Obviously, you have to cook yourself, but that's not a hardship. Get some meat and wine from one of the stores (we stop at the Spar at Malelane)... More

Having been many times to Kruger in the past, this is the first time that we stayed in a bush camp and I just cannot understand now why we never did that before. A friend advised this camp to us and are we so glad that we went. The camp is mostly full but they got a cancellation. No shop,... More

The renovation of the camp bungalows is almost finished. It was time, to get rid of the bathtub and replace it with a shower. Kitchen's are renovated too. However the monkeys/baboons are more sophisticated than ever: In the smaller bungalows, there the fridge is outside, you have to turn it to the wall so they cant open the door's! As... More

I must begin by making it very clear that this a Bushveld Camp and do not expect luxury in any form. You paying for the location in the Kruger and not for quality accommodation. The accommodation in my opinion is in need of an cosmetic makeover. Although it fits in with surroundings, in this modern day it could use a... More

Some say that Kruger National Park is a Zoo - somehow true, except you are lucky to get a hut in the Biyamiti Bushveld Camp! You will be outside in the bush - no restaurant, no shop, just you and a view other lucky ones staying in front of the Biyamiti river while enjoying your bray outside your house. Tipp:... More

We go as often as we can to this camp as it is very quiet, self catering and has only 15 chalets varying in size and some chalets have great views of the Biyamiti River. It has 18km of private road, which only guests of the bush camp are allowed to travel on. We saw the Big 5 in one... More

The approach road to Biyamiti was a gem with so many sightings before we got to the camp. Since the approach road is available for only folks with reservations, very less traffic also. The bungalows themselves were adequate but not up to date. I agree with another comment on the shower setup. The birdhide was amazing as we say a... More

The accommodation, as with the Sanparks accommodation, was clean and adequate. Everything worked well, although the shower set up was a bit awkward and there was some sort of repair work attempted in the kitchen. Not that it bothered us much - we braai-ed outside on the verandah area which was fantastic. Ice and wood was available from the reception... More
