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.

Accommodation

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.

Food and drink

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.

"...the majority of images are really impressive, each chosen for a practical reason, sometimes annotated to stress a point.

The authors clearly know what they are doing. For decades they have mapped their sightings, and in explaining how they achieved their images, they’re sharing invaluable tips on understanding wildlife behavior, reading the signs and getting yourself in the best position for the shot. 
There is a phenomenal wealth of information here; real substance."

"It's 764 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the Park...camp information. It takes quite a lot to impress me but I really feel that this book, which was 7 years in the making, is exceptional."            - Janey Coetzee, South Africa
