On the banks of the Biyamiti river, hidden by delagoa thickets, nestles one of the most beautiful bush camps in the Kruger National Park. The camp is ideally situated between huge wild fig and jackalberry trees with vast numbers of other fauna and flora species in abundance. The area is a game spotter's dream come true.
Climate: Kruger is in a summer rainfall area. Such precipitation is usually convectional and can result in heavy downpours.
The summer months (October to April) are hot and often balmy. Winters are warm and mild, although visitors going on night-drives will require warm clothing.
Day Visitors: Only residents are allowed in the camp and on the access roads to Biyamiti Bush Roads. Biyamiti Bush Camp can be booked through Central Reservations and is a wonderful bush experience for all. Biyamiti Bush Camp is situated within easy reach of the larger rest camps so that guests can make use of the larger camps amenities if needed.
