Berg-en-Dal has a trail around the camp which follows the fence.

At the dam in front of the restuarant is a sign -- please do not walk the trail after dark as it is not considered safe.

Walking between units -- or down the roads to the restuarant -- or to the ablutions in the camping area is fine :thumbs_up:

Hi MaryMattMillie,

We stayed there for the opening of the soccer world cup as a family treat. I wish that we could have stayed more than 1 night.

Some of the furniture has been updated - I think that some of the pics on the web site are old.

Berg En Dal camp

Unread post by MKY » Tue Apr 19, 2011 10:29 pm

Just wondering if anyone knows if there is car parking available at Berg En Dal if you are not staying as a resident? We are doing a walking safari, meeting at Berg En Dal, next month, and we need somewhere to leave the car for three nights.

Thanks for your help :lol:

There is safe parking especially for the wilderness trails folk next to the little office ( I am not sure what they use it for now) and the main road side of the laundry .. there is a lot of parking plenty space for caravans .
Do enjoy and dont forget your yellow ribbon too.

We also had the pleasure of watching 2 ele bulls grazing around unit 27 while having our lunch, and having a mud bath. On another occasion saw a leopard from the benches near the restaurant after some impala gave the alarm call. Then of course the usual bushbuck... terrapin,.. fish eagle call.... once saw about 10 marabou storks trying to fish the last few barbels from a small puddle. Could go on and on...

Berg and Dal is indeed teeming with life on the other side of the fence.

In February from bungalow 25 we also saw the rhinos, hippos and leapard twice over one weekend.

thebush In January there will definitely be plenty of water in the dam.
I would say units 24, 25 or 27 would give great views but I think you would need to request them early, like right now.
Even then they might be already allocated.
Good Luck & enjoy!

Re: Suggested roads to view game in Bergendal

Not many choices. Take the S110 and visit Matjulu waterhole, come back and take the S120 Steilberg road. Lots of beautiful views from the S120. If you have time, proceed on the H3, turn right on the S118, S119 and come back via the S114. But, like all roads, take it slowly, or as they say in Swahili, 'pole pole'

Hi and welcome on the forum Chiraaz,

we are just back from a 2 weeks stay in Kruger. And the main road to Berg en dal can be very productive.
We saw ellies buffs but also a large pack of wild dogs. We can recommend the S114 and S25 (unfortunatelly the bridge near Biyamiti is still closed..... :evil: ) but good chance for lions. We saw 4 beautifull big male lions in the early morning. The s118 and S119 with Gardeniahide, are very nice to do. Leopard area but also rhino's.
Steilberg is a beatifull road to do but we were not very lucky with sightings, just zebra's.
Have a nice trip!!
