In the midst of striking prehistoric settlements on the Matjulu Spruit, Berg-en-Dal camp has been built with care and preservation for the surrounding area - original San rock paintings still clearly visible from the hill shelters along the Bushman trail. The camp is flanked on the north and south by dry riverbeds and a dam, respectively, and trees alongside both, adding to the authentic wildlife ambiance enjoyed by guests. Berg en Dal camp is great for families as it is one of the rest camps with the most family cottages in the Kruger National Park.


• Tent and caravan sites have an electricity point. Communal ablutions and communal kitchen facilities are provided. Each camp site may host up to six people.
For tent and caravan sites, you need to provide your own tent and camping equipment, caravan or motor home. Some campsites allow for a tent only or caravan only, while others do allow for both. Please check your documentation to be sure that the correct type of campsite has been selected for your needs.

• Three-bed Bungalows, all with air conditioning and en-suite bathrooms (only showers, no baths). Perimeter views from the kitchenettes are optional and need to be requested in advance, if available. All kitchenettes are standard with a hotplate, fridge and sink. Includes an outdoor braai/barbeque area.

• Six-bed Family Cottages are also offered, (two of them being wheelchair accessible). The air conditioned rooms have one double bed, two single beds and two bench beds/single sleeper couches in the lounge area. Each cottage has a private bathroom, a fully equipped open-plan kitchen, lounge area, as well as an outdoor braai/barbeque area.

• The two Guest Houses occupy prime positions on the grounds. The kitchens are fully equipped with a microwave oven. Both Guest Houses have air conditioning. TVs are fitted with limited DSTV access. The J Le Roux Guest House has three bedrooms, each for 2 guests. The Rhino Guest House has four bedrooms, each for 2 guests.

Activities & Facilities

Berg-en-Dal Camp offers adventure in the form of guided bush walks and safari game drives, all under the supervision of well informed and keen professional field guides. Important to note - children under the age of six years old are not permitted on the safari game vehicles and children under the age of twelve year old are restricted from guided bush walks.

The Rhino perimeter trail camp walk is accessible to the blind with its Braille facilities, as well as being wheelchair accessible. Seasonal children’s educational programmes, nightly wildlife films and an eco-display in the reception all round-off this holistic holiday experience.

Facilities at the camp include information at the reception area, public telephones, a post box, restaurant, cafeteria, shop, an internet cafe, laundromat, filling station, communal kitchens and bathrooms, basic on-site first-aid assistance, auditorium and conference facilities, a day visitor picnic area in the camp and a swimming pool (available to overnight residents only).

What our guests have said about this accommodation

hennie steyn
We have a nice stay at Berg-en-Dal Restcamp except for almost been carried away by ants. They have to do something to that please.But apart from that, very nice..
Alan Currin
Absolutely perfect! Thank you!
Had a super trip. The bathrooms and washing up area should be cleaned twice a day
It was a nice stay, we would recommend this camp to anyone. You will see us again.
Ann Hindle
We loved every minute of our trip and I would have rated it 5 except for one disappointment, when we arrived at camp reception we were told that we could not book a night drive etc., as we were only 2 people, in order to book you have to have a minimum of 4 people in your party. I asked why and got no response, the rule makes absolutely no sense to me.
petunia Mabuse
Beautiful quiet and neat house......the linen and towels were fresh smelling as was all the kitchen utensils
Peter Edwards
camp is not visually the most attractive, but the best game was spotted in the surrounding areas. Bungalow had the advantage of an indoor kitchen which aided in the fight against bugs.
Lindy Trollip
Love this campsite... Spacious and so peaceful! Amazing sightings always close by! Will be back soon.
Gerard Hanna
Went for my wife's 50th birthday weekend and she says it could not have wished for anything better.
Baie lekker gebly.
Catherine Gendre
Very nice stay, we loved it.
Helma van Rooyen
We took overseas visitors to the Kruger Park during the hottest time of the year - crazy, I know. Berg-en-Dal bungalows were an oasis of cool restfulness. They were clean and a joy to visit. We also enjoyed the pool a lot.

Chris De b Rruin
It was so easy to make a booking with you.
Ross Fyffe
Bungalow was very adequate for our purposes, clean bedding and towels, comfortable beds and a very efficient air conditioner. Although on very hot nights a ceiling fan would have been a welcome addition to the furnishings.
Tony Klein
We had a party of 8 in the Rhino guest house. The lodge was immaculate and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would be good if the gas bar could be made to work and if WiFi could be made more accessible at the Reception.
Antoinette Myburgh
A beautiful camp with an exceptionally clean bungalow!

Kimmo Heldan
Good - excellent location within camp and value for money.
The trip was great. The rest camp was wonderful! Just sitting at the lookout point in the camp and saw 3 of the Big 5 was an experience of a life time
Rodrigo Paiva
Very easy to reach, near the south gate. It was the location where I saw the most amount of animals.
Liza Wilmot
We had a great stay in the park despite the heat wave. Our cabin was lovely, the staff friendly - a great short trip. Thank you.
This Restcamp is beautiful and peacefull. It's so modern and the staff was very friendly and informative. My family and I loved it, we had so much fun and will surely love to come back, also refer our friend and relatives.
Olga Smit
The bungalow perfect and very beautiful. We would like to come again in the future. Olga.
Gary Longshaw
As a group of 4 Adults and two children in 2 MP-V's we arrived early on the morning of October 1st at Malelane gate. The gate staff were friendly and professional, with even the assigned SAPS officer showing the kids the big skulls outside and telling them about the animals, while we went through the sign in motions. Our camp for the first night (Bergendal) was close to the gate, so we did a short circuit around the area before going there. The southern tip is teeming with a huge variety of wildlife, and we had seen three of the big five within a few hours. On arrival at Bergendal, the check in process was seamless, the staff were excellent, and the amenities at the camp were brilliant. The guest house we had booked was very clean, modern and comfortable with everything we needed and more. The following morning we headed North toward Skukuza taking a variety of back roads, to go to watering holes, viewpoints and hides. We reached Skukuza Around 1:pm and by then had seen Lion feeding, Elephant herds, several Rhino, Giraffe, all manner of Buck, and even a Cheetah. Skukuza was great, and we spent the evening having a barbecue. The only disappointment was there was no facility at the restaurant or bar to watch the Springboks play in the Rugby World cup. On previous visits there has always been facilities at the bar or Restaurant? The next day we drove toward Pretoriuskop leaving early, and completed our trip with a spectacular leopard sighting, no more than 10 to 15 meters away from us. All in another very memorable long weekend in the Kruger, I will keep coming back for more.
Great camp clean rooms friendly staff.
Gerda Bouwer
We were amazed how beautiful and modern this camp was .The braai areas also nice and large .

Vanessa Whitebread
Was lovely. Would obviously of liked a boundry chalet. But was just happy to of gotten a booking.
Mr Frans Venter
Our arrival at the Park was greeted with friendly, efficient staff. We were given a few brochures of the camps and a large map of the park. The camp was well run, clean and staff very helpful. We enjoyed our stay at this camp and were extremely lucky to view lots of game.

Simple, clean accommodation. Everything you need. Only complaint was the shower, which was a water saving one, understandably, but was rather painful to use! Otherwise the cabin was great, would definitely stay again.
tarynne lucas
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We had a stunning weekend, all the aspects of the game were good, pleasant, helpful staff all round. We were depressed to see the park so dry, but we really enjoyed ourselves.
Pierre Liebenberg
Ablutions clean, neat and well maintained. Boiling water was a nice surprise. The Blue Electricity plugs connections was a surprise as I did not read this on the brochure - to be bought. Overall it was very nice as all the facilities are well maintained.
Very nice camp to stay in.. accommodation is always comfortable.
Charl Schoeman
We really enjoyed Berg en dal tent camp. Everything was always so nice and clean. We had one incident with a noisy camper but he was delt with by the Parks Ranger as we complaint so there the service was also very good.
Good Reception and value for money. Stood a long time at the gate entering as the day visitor quota was full and we did not know that we could pass. We saw a lot of animals but no lions/leopards.
Excellent staff , clean facilities , great experience.
Ray Blignaut
Berg n Dal is tucked away in the hills and seems to be in a dry part of the park. The view from the camp is limited but there are plenty Rhino in close proximity. Food and accommodation is good.

Comfortable and clean surroundings. We had a very pleasant stay for the two days.

Renate Ferreira
Saw the big five! Very happy.
Our stay at the different camps was absolutely fantastic. Each camp has its own unique charm and we enjoyed every moment of it. We relaxed; it was quite, clean, green and just overall “lekker”. I will definitely stay at each of the camps again and the staff was always friendly and helpful. Thanks for making our stay so memorable.
Our first time in this camp and it was absolutely fantastic. The camp is clean, beautiful, green and so peaceful. We will definitely book there again.
Matthew Bowler
We stayed really nice at the camp. All good and thumbs up!!
Fiona Martin
Good and friendly service, efficient and made to feel welcome. Thank you KNP.
It was great as always Kruger is a very special place, please just check the water is constant running out of one of the ablutions at the caravan park but yes we enjoyed it tremendously and would definitely visit again.
Leon Mostert
Very friendly at reception and immediate service. Shop and food court good.
Camp very quiet and peaceful, accommodation very neat and clean, comfortable. A better stove instead of two plates would be nice, perhaps an oven. Otherwise a wonderful stay, would recommend ..... saw wild dog!!!
Willie Theron
I enjoyed my stay in Berg&Dal; .The facilities were top class.
Abraham Koekemoer
One of the best camps in the park. Saw rhinos,buffaloes and a beautiful cheetah on the first day. Saw elephants and lions on the second day.Lots of other animals. The chalet was comfortable and clean
Nice Comfortable. Stayed many times before at Berg en Dal.

Clean, nice atmosphere, nice to have seats by the dam so that you can watch the animals (we saw elephants, a croc and buffalo when we were there)

My experience with booking my Southern Africa tour with was amazing. The Safari Consultant I was working with (special shout out to Keagan Davids) was the most helpful, responsive, polite and awesome person to work with. I originally tried to book a safari holiday with a local agent in Australia and was getting nowhere fast. I decided to do some leg work myself and put a request in for some advice on It was the best thing I could have done! I only wished I had planned my first half of the holiday with given the ease and expertise they have provided. I highly recommend their service - you will not be disappointed!

Simply The Best
We are now home from our trip and am writing to thank you for organising such an amazing adventure. We cannot fault anything about the trip from start to finish. Buffalo Camp was fantastic - the accommodation, the food and the hospitality too but most of all our game drive guys who were awesome. We saw the ‘big 5” and more. Slon and Forest went above and beyond to find the animals we wanted to see. Then we transferred to Victoria Falls River Lodge and became part of a family. I can hardly find the words to describe it. From sitting in our plunge pool watching a crocodile swimming up the Zambezi to our helicopter ride over Victoria Falls and everything in between. What a beautiful place run by beautiful people. We were invited back by both Buffalo Camp and Victoria Falls River Lodge and hopefully we can do that in the not too distant future and if it becomes possible we will not hesitate to use again. We truly recommend your services. Once again, thank you for organising the best holiday we have ever had and one we shall treasure forever. Best wishes.

Pascal should be your Go-to consultant - 5 stars
Pascal was wonderful to work with. We wanted to stay in Sabi Sands during peak season and were having a lot of trouble finding a great lodge to stay in. Pascal was able to find us a lodge that met our needs, call the lodge to ensure they had the rooms we wanted, book flights, transfers, etc. and was very attentive and easy to talk to. He made sure to get back to us quickly and when he said he would. He was always available and I would recommend using him and to anyone looking into a safari in the future.

Superb short Safari
We were referred to through a UK safari holiday company. We were dubious at first about dealing with a company in South Africa but we found and in particular Mr Keagan Davids, very easy to comunicate with. He was very communicative and made all the necessary arrangements. Unfortunately, the safari lodge we'd booked got flooded out so Keagan found an alternative lodge Called Kapama River Lodge. It was great. Very nice accommodation. Great efficient and friendly staff etc. We were not disappointed. All of the arrangements went like clockwork so we'd highly recommend

Booking for Addo Elephant Park…
I made a booking for Addo Elephant Park through The instructions were clearly conveyed to me regarding the payment of a deposit to secure the booking. The service received from the lady I dealt with was very professional. For example, upon requesting a change in accommodation type, the request was promptly attended to and I was informed accordingly which I noticed was outside office hours. Proof of secured accommodation was sent promptly and reminder for payment of balance was send well in advance of final date. Finally, once payment was cleared, I received the booking voucher as well as forms to be filled in by all passengers upon entrance as well as the conservation fees to be paid. All in all it was a pleasure to deal with and we are looking forward to our stay in ADDO ELEPHANT PARK. Thank you.

She gave us more than enough information while letting us feel like the decision was ours and was flexible to providing multiple options. Can't reccommend her enough!

Unorgettable trip in South Africa
We have spent 12 days as a family in South Africa with my 3 children and my wife who is in a wheelchair. Thanks to Pascal, consultant, we were able to spend an unforgettable moment with a great program while being well accompanied despite our constraints. I recommand particularly the "Monwana game lodge" for a safari in Hoedspruit. It's an amazing place with very nice people and a real family atmosphere. Thank you to the entire team for this unforgettable trip.

Cape Town miracle
I was in Cape Town, South Africa recently for an athletic competition and had allowed myself a week of personal time to relax and properly conclude the trip, but had not bothered to plan a safari to occupy the time. I was skeptical of the cost and whether I would enjoy the experience, however a couple days into that final week it occurred to me, in a bit of a panic attack, what a waste it would be not to take advantage of this opportunity. I hopped online and started looking at flights to Johannesburg (almost all the safaris in SA start there with an early morning pick up), but it was basically impossible to get a flight early enough and/or to coordinate with the multiple safaris operating in or just outside of Kruger. With no apparent options available to turn my remaining 4 1/2 days into even a 3 day safari I stumbled on the most obvious website one could imagine, I'd completely given up negotiating all the variables on my own but here was a safari travel agent that might be able to help me .. and they were based right out of Cape Town, literally a stones throw from my lodgings. Serendipity, or so i hoped. I immediately sent out an email and crossed my fingers .. for roughly an hour and a half, at which point Dolan from responded to me requesting I give him a call so that we could expedite potential arrangements. My in country phone plan wasn't able to make calls, but we arranged for him to call me and not 3 hours after being in the grip of despair Dolan got through to me and far from notifying me of how absurd it was to hold out hope for a literally, last minute safari adventure with barely 4 days available to me, he had already worked out all the details I'd sent and created a preliminary safari trip that would bypass Johannesburg airport for a flight the next morning to a closer, much, much smaller airport where I would be picked up taken, not to a 3 day safari, but a full 4 day safari, then back to the tiny, tiny airport for a return flight to Cape Town with 2 hours to spare for my return leg all the way home. It almost feels like an afterthought, after the minor miracle Dolan was able to conjure up, but the safari itself at Simbavati Lodge was just an absolutely stunning experience. The single "tent" he booked me was as luxurious as any 4 star hotel I've stayed in, the game drives, one every morning, one every evening were more amazing than I could have ever imagined, and the food, 3 meals a day with snacks and an open bar was sublime. I could go on about the wonderful staff, or the wonderful other safari goers you can meet and grab a drink with, or the different animals walking through the open lodge facilities daily .. but I've gone on long enough. I'll simply conclude by saying .. safari, absolutely, yes, do it, it is amazing. And when you do decide, will do you right and if you have the pleasure of working with Dolan, do give him my thanks .. the entire experience was the best part of my trip :)

A great company
What to say! We planned a South African Safari for 2020 with We researched companies and took a chance on one we had never heard of before. Henry Franklin was our agent, we gave him our budget and wish list. He came up with a wonderful looking trip and we made our choices! Then came Covid, preventing us from going. We couldn’t have been in better hands. Henry rebooked everything for the next year. He kept us updated on how things looked there. When in 2021, we decided it still looked iffy, he rebooked us a second time for 2022. We couldn’t have been happier with the service we had in a rough time for all. We had a wonderful experience on our trip when we finally got to go!! Henry had everything so well organized and gave us a detailed list of what transfer companies would be meeting us and when. When Airlink bumped us and put us on standby returning from Victoria Falls, we called the concierge number Henry had given us and Catherine worked hard on this and got us back on our flight. The team had our back and we have no regrets. Would definitely use them again. Our lodging was wonderful, saw the big 5 within first 2 drives. Henry definitely knew the territory and did a great job matching what we wanted with where he suggested we go and stay. Thanks, Henry and Catherine!

Superior service, knowledgeable, transparent, amazing can-do attitude
These guys get 10/10. I have booked with them a few times. To Kruger National Park, including both public and private(concession) camps, flights and car hire. Their senior agent, Dolan is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail, transparency, and 'can-do' attitude are out of the ordinary. I recently came into contact with Tanya at as well. It looks like all their agents are similarly well trained. Thank you. I cannot recommend Dolan and his team highly enough.

I've recently interacted with Dolan and hands down he's been the best travel agent that I've every worked with. He was a wealth of experience and knowledge which shows volumes. He took into consideration my budget and my individual needs to tailor make a package with recommendations for my preference,he knows Kruger and Greater Kruger like the back of his hands and I will wholeheartedly recommended his services. He is truly an asset to his institution.

Nelia Nyamhanza
Nelia Nyamhanza, was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly in designing our trip every step of the way. She listened to our request of places we wanted to visit and advised us on what best to do. This made the whole experience wonderful. Every guide from Ilios was eager to share their culture with us and are kind people, as well as, the guide/driver from Elephant Camp, Victoria Falls. We will recommend others to you so that they can be part of your amazing country.

Excellent service by the agent Jayson Scheffers (Africa Safari Expert). We had little idea of the place and things to do. He made it at all soo easy and planned it so well that it all went smooth. We had a baby with us so we were not sure about the things but he advised us well. All the hotels, pickups etc were well informed about our situation and we did not face any issues. He was always there to answer any questions 24/7. Very personalized service. Highly recommended.
