In the Biyamiti area look out for
One of Biyamiti's main drawcards is the road leading to Biyamiti Bushveld Camp - the S139 - which follows the river through the mixed woodland. Only residents are allowed on this drive that dips over a number of watercourses that run into the Biyamiti.
There are wonderful trees along the route - leadwoods, marulas and weeping boer-beans, which often grow on top of termite mounds. There is a white-headed vulture nest near Blinkwater lookout point, which offers a good view of the Biyamiti, a few kilometres upstream of the camp.
The area around the Biyamiti Water Hole windmill is usually the centre of a lot of birding and animal activity. There are often elephant and buffalo on the banks of the Biyamiti.
The Biyamiti is a seasonal river and is, therefore, usually dry, but that does not diminish the prolific birdlife. Biyamiti area is a good year-round birding spot, but it really comes alive in summer.
Biyamiti is renowned for its cuckoos, which are very active along the watercourse in late summer before departing for their African or European breeding grounds in March.
