“Nice enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

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.

Stayed April 2014, travelled with family

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 mind we paid R1800 for one night for that piece of rubbish chalet.

And the restaurant at the camp!! A total rip off and let down. I ordered a tomato cocktail instead the waiter brings me a bottle of tomato sauce!!

Breakfast were expensive and small.

I will not return to Berg en Dal even if they paid me.

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 with our guide Solly who is passionate and hard-working.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Family Unit on the perimiter, which was very good. I am unsure of the other lodging...

Only stayed one night at Berg En Dal restcamp in FA6 family Cottage which was much better than expected. It was very clean, spacious , open plan living area with everything you require for self catering holiday. The outside Courtyard was excellent with BBQ and lots of seating. The swimming pool is excellent although very busy, all age groups having a great time.
Surpised how much wildlife there we actually saw here so near to the gate. Stunning sunset.
As we only stayed one night didn't really do it justice but had a great time and would definately stay here again.

on the very southern side of the park. This lodge is ideal for late arrival, only 15 minutes away from the gate. Rooms are ok and spacey (with dishes for Braai/barbecue) , no great views into the park. Game drives well organized. All in all ok.

Seeing four rhinoceros wallowing in a pool a few meters from your car is enough to win over even the most critical person. This was my experience just a few months ago when I visited Kruger in 2013. The amazing thing is that you just cannot believe you are actually witnessing it! I stayed at Berg-en-Dal whilst in the park and generally it seemed clean and the staff particularly friendly and helpful. Especially the woman at the booking in desk. The accommodation was okay be it a little dark and pokey with face brick throughout and very small rooms. The kitchen was simple and thank goodness open plan as I think I might have suffocated otherwise. The restaurant served fresh tasty food and yet again the staff were really very patient and efficient. What a fabulous pool

I must admit to some trepidation booking a bungalow at Berg en Dal rest camp because I'd been told they were quite basic. In my case I booked a type BA3U which lists the following facilities: 3 single beds, Aircon, Fridge, Hotplate, Sink, Utensils, Wc and shower. I stayed for just one night. The bedroom, kitchen area and bathroom were very clean, the bed surprisingly comfortable. Kitchen crockery and cutlery were provided as well as some utensils. I heard that the restaurants at the rest camps are not at all good, so I brought charcoal and food and had a BBQ (braai) on the grill area outside. Make sure to bring a torch! Overall I was very pleased with the standard of accommodation and wouldn't hesitate to use Berg en Dal again providing I got a bungalow of the same or better quality. I've rated the property "very good" because it was so much better than I expected and perfectly acceptable (I'm normally a hotels kind of guy).

Room Tip: To avoid disappointment, get the most expensive bungalow you can afford.
