Berg en Dal rest camp is situated on the bank of the Matjulu Spruit and is surrounded by rocky hillsides, it is one of the newer camps and as a result it has spacious face-brick bungalows - - not like the circular 'rondavels' of the older camps like Pretoriuskop or Satara.
Each bungalow is nicely spaced out giving you privacy and are set within natural bush and aloes leaving much of the natural habitat unchanged within the camp.
The bungalows were renovated in 2008/2009, this was the old look....
and this is the new look....
The bungalows have en suite bathrooms, a kitchen with fridge-freezer, cutlery, crockery, cooking utensils and an outdoor braai area.
Braaing at our bungalow....
Berg en Dal has camping sites, each with a power point and braai (barbecue) area. There is a large swimming pool near the campers.
Residents and day visitors can also make use of the designated picnic facilities.
It has a laundromat, petrol (gas) station and a well stocked shop.
For guest not wanting to cook, there is a lovely restaurant and cafeteria with a view over the Matjulu dam. The food is good, but we still remember the good old days when the park did their own catering... the food was very good and the waiters were entertaining.
Matjulu dam and viewing spot is close to reception and the restaurant allowing guest an opportunity to sit and watch the game like elephant and other animals coming down to drink.
The Rhino walking trail in camp is geared for the blind with braille information post at different intervals.
There is a an open-air auditorium where Wildlife films are shown and the Rhino Hall museum which is next to reception, this offers a world of information about both the White and Black Rhinos.
