Activities at Berg-en-Dal Rest Camp
Berg en Dal Camp offers full day game drives as well as morning and afternoon game walks for a Kruger National Park safari. See traditional dancing performed by the local people and view traditional San (bushman) paintings along the Bushman trail.
There are well qualified wildlife guides that can take guests on half or full day sightseeing game drives on request for your Kruger National Park safari. These guides are available for morning and afternoon game walks as well. There is also a self-guided walking trail, equipped with Braille for visually impaired hikers on this Kruger National Park suggested itinerary.
The area hosts White Rhino, Kudu, Impala, Giraffe, Elephant, Reedbuck, Klipspringer, Grey Rhebok and Warthog. Leopard are seen regularly in the region - some lucky people have even seen them drinking at the dam in front of the camp, while on a Kruger National Park safari tour. Wild Dog are also found in the area. Lion are usually found in the lower plains on the roads to Skukuza and Crocodile Bridge.
The camp is an excellent venue to see fantailed flycatchers, Heuglin's and Whitethroated robins. Scarletchested sunbird is particularly prominent. The adjacent Matjulu Dam attracts a constant supply of water birds and African Fish Eagle is usually present and viewed at close quarters. The surrounding hills host a wealth of species and are a good place to search for pennantwinged nightjar (in summer and at dusk) and croaking cisticola.

Berg en Dal Restaurant:
The restaurant is situated in the main complex overlooking the dam. The restaurant has large windows allowing the guests to enjoy the view whilst relaxing in an air-conditioned atmosphere.
