Family of 6 stayed in a chalet for 7 nights. The location is fantastic if you are flying into Nelspruit. Doing the Berg-en-dal, Lower Sabie, Skukuza ring is probably best for game viewing. The accommodation is not up to standard. Camp facilities for young children are lacking. There is a large pool and small jungle gym at Berg-en-Dal. I'd rather... More

Stayed one night at Berg-en-Dal rest came (Bungalow BA3U). Great way to start the holiday. First night in Kruger National Park. The bungalow was cosy and had all that we required for self-catering. Ensure you have private amenities. Makes the stay much nice. Check in staff were fabulous and they ensured our friends were in a bungalow near by. Make... More

We enjoyed the camp for the 2 days we spent here. The wildlife experience was exceptional and the facilities fine. The location was a perfect launch spot for our wildlife drives. Great location, comfortable lodgings, excellent stay.

The perfect location for exiting the park. The chalets are great, and the best part is that each is fairly private. Your neighbour is not within earshot. Loved the game drive and the guide was by far the best we've experienced in Kruger. He knew his stuff and was very obliging when it came to questions. Definitely one of the... More

We stayed here because we had a long drive to the park and needed to get to the cottages before the gates closed. We weren't disappointed - we had a two bed chalet and it was comfortable, private and had everything we needed. The restaurant has good food and the shop is adequately stocked for necessities. Staff all round were... More

Can highly recommend the Bushman Wilderness Trail starting from the Berg-en-Dal rest camp. Fantastic hiking experience, knowledgable guidance from the rangers, comfortable and pleasant accomodation and last but not least good food. A must do!

This was my first return to Kruger in 14 years. I have undertaken contract work in Southern Africa for twenty five years and my wife has so much wanted to go out on safari. So we went! Flew into Jo'Burg and drove, unlikely to do it again, forgot I was getting old. The trip is fine, 420 kilometres, stop at... More

We only stayed the one night. Came in by Malelane gate, reception was great, very good shop, did not use restaurant. We stayed in 3 bed bungalow with kitchen a view of river. Nice enough but dark and a nice shower with glass door.

My wife and my parents spend one night at berg en dal. The chalets is as old as the kruger park itself. Poor decor. Poor equiped kitchen. Dirty showers and uncomfy beds. The chalet is for 4 people but yet the cutlery and glasses in the chalet is not even enough for 2 people. A real let down keeping in... More

We stayed in a Family Unit (4 adults). The rooms were clean, as can be expected from SanParks. The shop isn't a supermarket, but you can get the bare essentials from them (meat, charcoal etc). The restaurant had very good food, and many options to choose from, however service wasn't entirely fast. The game drives were very good and informative... More
