Biyamiti Bushveld Camp - Kruger National Park Info & Advice
The Biyamiti Bushveld Camp is situated on the Mbiyamiti River and is well hidden by Delagoa Thickets, Wild Fig and Jackalberry tree's. It is one of the best bushveld camps in the Kruger and probably the most popular due to it's excellent game and bird watching and it's tranquil setting. Named after the river it is located on, Biyamiti is a Tsonga word which roughly means "where barricades had to be made around houses". There is a lot of bird and animal life in this camp and is one of my favourite places to stay in the Kruger.
