I stayed in Satara and Skukuza during my 6D5N trip to Kruger and Berg En Dal was my last stop. To splurge, we booked a Family Cottage for just the 2 of us, and we thankfully got allocated bungalow 26, which was near to the fence.
The cottage was fantastic, with separate rooms, air conditioning, a completely equipped kitchen, and a living area.
More fantastic was the game viewing! The bungalow was next to the fence and the rhino trail, so on the day of arrival we saw elephants, bush buck, rhinos, buffalos, warthog and many animals by the other side of the dam, which was close to a dam. The views were also fantastic at the start of the trail, where benches are placed outside the restaurants.
We also went for the morning walk and night drive which produced great viewing. We even encountered 6 rhinos on our morning walk. Needless to say that was the highlight of our trip!
I dont know what people mean by atmosphere since I never stayed at Lower Sabie, but the combination of proximity to the fence and the nighttime sounds made it pretty darned atmospheric to me.
Berg en Dal also has an internet corner which charges 30 Rand for 30 minutes. One of my favourite camps as you have the possibility of seeing Big 5 in the area. I saw 4 out of the Big 5 in one day around Berg En Dal. only one missing was the elusive leopard.
