Sungubala Eco Camp is a highly recommended property for self catering in Bergville for tourists visiting the Drakensberg region.

About Sungubala Eco Camp

Sungubala Eco Camp lies in the heart of the pristine Drakensberg wilderness, directly below Hlolela and Sungubala (2000m), just north of the Royal Natal National Park.

Set on a secluded mountain farm overlooking a valley, the Eco Camp is a self catering option for nature lovers, those in search of an active getaway, or a quiet place to relax.

In keeping with the eco theme, all power is wind and solar generated. Gas is used for cooking and water heating. Guests are encouraged to minimise their impact on the environment.

Sungubala Eco Camp is a great base from which to explore the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg World Heritage Site.

Self Catering Accommodation

Accommodation at Sungubala is in three types of units.

Camels Camp:
Consists of four double thatched rondawels sleeping two in each with bedroom and en-suite bathroom. As well as three thatched A-Frames each sleeping two people; a communal cosy dining room, lounge area with fire place, fully fitted kitchen, outside braai and enclosed boma.

Rondawels are built in pairs so it is possible to book two adjacent ones for a family of four.

Chalets:
Two well equipped chalets feature a lounge and open plan kitchen with fireplace, private braai facilities, one double bedroom shower en suite and a second three bedded room, also with shower en suite.

Mountain House:
This comfortable, rustic cottage has two bedrooms sleeping six, two bathrooms with showers only, a small kitchen and dining area.

Activities

Activities at Sungubala Eco Camp include a sparkling swimming pool, MTB trails and daily guided hikes, whilst nearby there is horse riding, and the All out Adventures Centre for quad biking, paintball, cable tours and other adrenaline activities.

Verified reviewexcellent

Sungubala is an amazing camp located completely off the grid deep in the mountains. It is an absolute great experience staying there and you couldn't be further away from the busy city life. The view from the terrace of the mountains in the morning is absolutely breathtaking and does not get old. If you're lucky to get a starry night you will be amazed by the magic in the sky. We stayed in the 5-sleeper chalet which was perfect for two couples, friends or a family. The kitchen is well equipped and everything is very clean and even gets cleaned every day. Even though the camp is only powered by solar and wind power, there are even plugs to charge your devices, so you're not missing anything. Instead of a TV the lounges are equipped with a variety of board games which is a nice touch. It is definitely not what you would expect of an "eco-camp" and offers all the luxury you need. There are plenty of hiking trails all around the camp (they also offer free guided hikes every morning) and the beautiful royal natal national park is just a 20 minute drive. You will definitely find yourself not wanting to ever leave this place.

Verified reviewvery good

Sungubala is a super-quiet, peaceful retreat with breath-taking views to the Berg and into the valley below. The chalets are neat and well-equipped. A friendly guide took us on a leisurely hike. The camp attendant was always nearby and available. Our host, Rhona Carte, went out of her way to help us.
