Directions to Biyamiti Bushveld Camp
Biyamiti is one of the Park's most celebrated Bushveld camps. This serene camp, which consists of just 15 cottages, is nestled on the banks of the Biyamiti river, and regularly serves up a variety of unique and exciting wildlife sightings. The region around the camp is particularly picturesque, with Delogoa thickets, Wild Fig and Jackalberry trees punctuating the region. The camp is also off limits to day visitors, and, because of this, the stretch of private road leading up to, and from, the camp often serves up special sightings away from the bustle of the main roads.
