Sungubala Mountain Camp, Bergville, Drakensberg, Northern Kwa-Zulu Natal.

A unique camp high in the mountains adjacent to the Ukhathlamba Drakensberg Park – a World Heritage Site. It is known to locals as “Mafica Baroa” – the place the Bushmen (Bushman) visited. Created for nature lovers. Small intimate camp accommodates a maximum of 20. Safari tents under thatched gazebos and two-bed A-framed units. Communal ablution facility. No electricity. Paraffin and gas enhances the “under the stars” atmosphere. Communal boma is equipped with refrigeration, hot and cold water and a kitchen with gas cookers.  Braai facilities and a large fire pit. Self-contained 8-bed unit with its own kitchen and ablution facilities. Log beds with comfortable mattresses. Bedding is provided. Bring your own food, drink, personal necessities and towels. Guided hikes to Cannibal Cavern, Bushman (Bushmen) paintings at Lone Rock, Bishops’s Inkaba (belly button) or the “Silent Woman”. Horse riding and trout fishing nearby. The use of private 4x4’s is only possible by prior arrangement. To preserve the tranquillity of Sungubala, we regret that 4-wheelers, scrambles and portable hi-fi systems are not permitted.

Bergville is on the R74 southeast of Harrismith, which is at the intersection of the N3 with the N5. Travel southwest on the R74 from Harrismith, passing the Sterkfontein Dam on your right, and cross over the Oliviershoek Pass. Turn right towards the Northern Drakensberg Resorts.  Follow the signs to the Cavern Berg Resort. Guests leave their vehicles at the Cavern’s guarded car park, which is 25 minutes walk from the camp. Transfers to the camp in a 4x4. AYSungubala
