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.

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.

Hi Chas, have a look here :

Not sure how newly renovated they are though.

Hi, are there any photos of the FA4 bungalows? We have a FA6 booked in September but just seen there is a FA4 available on our dates. As there are only 3 of us would swop if FA4 are renovated bungalows.

Hi Kite and Merlin

Apparently the FA4 units are 1,2,3,11,12,17,18,19. Merlin, the FA4 are the same price as the FA6.

I stayed in one of the FA6 units in September 2012, they were lovely (can't remember the number offhand, it wasn't far from reception.)

I've asked on the Facebook page if anyone has a photo, if I can get one I'll send it to you.

Berg-En-Dal units

Unread post by castas » Wed Apr 09, 2014 2:56 am

Can anyone tell me if the FA6 units at Berg-En- Dal are better or newer / or the same or worse than the FA4 units...

I am booked, but for two adults and a child and I can still change, as there are rooms available
They are the same price...

How do we choose a room number in advance please?

A warm welcome to the forum, castas :) May you find everything you wish for here (and probably a whole lot that you didn't) but it is mostly good :lol:

The FA6's are definitely bigger than the FA4's as they sleep 2 more people. "Better or newer / or the same or worse" ummmm they may be better if you're arriving with 6 people, but seeing as you're arriving with 3 you'll be okay with a FA4. A word of warning. If you have a few "visitors" that aren't human, make sure that you keep doors and windows either closed or watched at all times, and that your child does not walk around with any form of food in his/her hands. He/She WILL be mugged by the vervets, and they have very scary fangs and attitudes That said, you and your companion/girlfriend/wife must not do that either as the "visitors" will be more than a match for you. Never feed them, as that has the ultimate result of them having to be destroyed. Be wary of them at all times. Even though this problem has been cleared a few times, they have an annoying tendency to keep returning.

Choosing a room in advance is a different story. What is your preference? You can contact the camp directly on +27 (0)13 735 6106/7 and arrange your preferred accommodation. The camp map can be found here. Here's hoping that this has helped you :)
The simple rule to follow with all animals is one of respect.

hello castas, why don't you get the unit that sleeps 3? We were in Berg en Dal in December, we are also 2 adults and 1 child and we stayed in unit number 21. It has 3 single beds, shower and toilet, fully equipped kitchen, aircon, a ceiling fan, outside braai area, it was really very well maintained and extremely clean :D :D

suebfly, the restaurant at Berg en Dal is simply awesome :gflower: :gflower: we stayed in Berg en Dal for 3 nights in December 2013, we left 01 January to move to our last camp, we decided to have breakfast because we were all packed up, the restaurant was fully operational by 8am, the service is good, the food is good, the presentation of the food is good, really good value for money, there is also a Coffee shop next to the park shop, it serves, cakes, muffins, tea/coffee, hot chocolate and other drinks, it is understandable why Berg en Dal receives the camp of the year award year after year

Rolypoly, we stayed in Berg en Dal over December 2013, we ate at the restaurant numerous times, the food was tasty, the prices very competitive, the presentation was most appealing and the staff were very attentive. what shocked us the most was that on 01 January 2014 the restaurant was open and fully functional at 8.00am, well worth a visit, sit outside, the view is mesmerizing
