Hi bushhugger, my SO and self stayed at BED in November and were very pleased with the accommodation and sightings in the area. The cottage I beleive it was no 27 was extremely comfortable and close to the perimeter fence and the rhimo trail. it was very clean with a lovely covered outside area. the staff were very friendly and efficient. :clap: :clap: We didnt use the restaurant so cant comment on that. We are hoping to pay a return visit sometime in 2013. Have a good time.

Hi bushhugger.

Berg-en-dal is a very well-run camp with nice accommodation. The staff are friendly and efficient. The area has good sightings and is very pretty.

One word of warning, however, be very aware of the vervet monkeys. They will help you unpack your car when you arrive (don't leave the car boot/doors open between trips taking stuff to chalet) and will sneak into your chalet if you leave the door/s open for a moment - especially if you are standing at the braai.

Have a great trip and wonderful sightings!

I will be going to B&D for the first time in roughly 20yrs, in June.

Having not been in the area for some time, other than passing through, I am unaware of the best sundowner spots (Alcohol free, of course :whistle:) close to camp.

Can anyone recommend the best place to stop off, for a quiet few minutes right at the end of the day?

Is there a separate toilet and also is there a toilet in the bathroom?

Thanks. :D


Hi! Marge

The toilet and shower are under one room for FA6 units.

Hi! Marge

I went to check the set up myself yesterday and this is how it is. We have two single beds in the sitting room. one bedroom with double bed and the other one with two single beds. Toilet, shower and bath are in separate rooms. Each has its own door. Hope this helps.

I'm sure you will like it Marge! It's a wonderful camp in a beautiful landscape.
If you are also interested in birds you shouldn't miss the opportunity to look for them inside the camp as well :wink:

A lovely camp with much to do... Following the walking trial inside the camp, sitting on a bench at the waterhole etc... Lots of birds and animals in the camp... Last year during my visit, I saw additional to the ground squirrels, a leopard tortoise, a rock monitor and a honey badger... :dance: Not sure if the honey badger is a permanent resident, but was awesome to see one of those again... I am sure you will love Berg and Dal!! :D

Hi,

Looking at booking 2 nights at Berg En Dal in November and probably going to go for a BA3 unit. Can anyone tell me what numbers these are so I can have a look on the map, and also if there is a particular number that you would recommend.
Alternatively should I pay the extra and get a perimeter unit, and again if I do that, any number that I should request?

Thanks!

I think it's absolutely worth to stay in a peremiter unit. I was in unit 27 the last two trips and was very happy there :thumbs_up:

Kirsty, you should be able to see the # of the BA3's from This map

I think whether you get a perimeter bungalow also depends on how much time you plan on spending in camp as to whether it warrants the extra cost.
But it is nice to be able to sit on the veranda and look either into the bush or dam I must say.
We have just stayed in a BA3U # 81 and altho it wasn't the best view it was OK.
we only arrived there late so had about 30 minutes before it was too dark to see anything.
I would say next door # 80 was the better option.
We did have the Genet come visiting early evening and during the night a Hyena must have walked right on the fence line calling very loudly.

Has anyone any good news to tell me about JLe Roux guest house? Have booked for one night in December. I have been reading a few bad reports regarding this accommodation and praying that it has improved. :pray:
I booked it as a family gift and will be so disappointed if it is awful. :(
What I want to know: Is there a view ? always most important.
and, as it is hellish expensive is it worth it?

Is this true?
Hope to swim there in march


Dear Bert

I have checked with the camp manager at Satara and he confirmed that the swimming pool is in good conditions. Our swimming pools are being monitored and maintained regularly.
