So easy to book the accommodation with South African Places with everything organised. Staff at Berg-en-dal were very helpful and the accommodation was was perfect. We had duiker and monkeys roaming around the outside which was amazing for the kids. Our accommodation had everything we needed for our stay and the shop stocked everything we hadn't thought of as well as reasonably priced souvenirs. Would definitely be recommending Berg-en-dal to others for a truly wonderful resting place whilst in the Kruger Park.

The place had everything we needed! We expected it to be much more simple than it was. Definitely recommend if you are looking for an affordable stay at Kruger!

I can not fault anything.

Berg en Dal is a great camp to stay it. It is located in an area that is abundant with game and is extremely picturesque. The camp is very family friendly with wonderful shaded areas and a lovely, large family oriented swimming pool. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the convenience store and curio shop is great and we particularly enjoyed the evening film show under the stars.
I would highly recommended Berg en Dal camp, especially if you prefer a 'quieter' and a less busy camp than the other larger camps in the Kruger.
