Your Guide to the Drakensberg and Natal Midlands

Bergville - Gateway to the Northern Drakensberg

Bergville is the gateway to the Northern Drakensberg and there is a tourism office of the Drakensberg Publicity Association in Bergvilles centre. The third Friday of each month sees the local cattle sales. Less than 50km from the towering Amphitheatre of the Royal Natal National Park, this ideally-situated agricultural and trading centre of Bergville was laid out in 1897 by a retired sea captain.
