About Berg River Resort

The Berg River Resort is located in the Paarl Valley, just 60 km north east of Cape Town, perfectly positioned for exploring the Boland, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek Winelands. The resort offers various water sports in a tranquil setting and is located close to famous wine estates, country golf courses, shops, and excellent restaurants.

Situated on the banks of the Berg River, the resort offers a tranquil setting as well as activities for children of all ages. There are approximately 150 partially grassed stands for caravans and tents, most with 15 amp electrical outlets, while the self-catering family chalets cater two to six people. These range from bachelor-style chalets for two people to two-bedroom units.

Berg River Cafe provides essentials as well as meals, and catering for small, private functions and group bookings can also be arranged. Please note that some of the facilities will be closed for the winter from May till end of September. Please note that we cater for couples and families (parents with school going children) only.

Due to the ongoing drought in the Western Cape the water level in the river has dropped significantly to the point that the river has stopped flowing all together . This will be the situation till we receive enough rain for the authorities to release water from the Berg River Dam.

Berg River Resort and the adjoining farm have no access to Municipal water. The use of our own alternative water sources from boreholes and the river means that the pools and water slide will continue to operate during this summer.The water restrictions which apply for Municipal water also apply to clients water use at the Resort. This is to ensure that every effort is made collectively to reduce water consumption and comply with Government regulations.

Family friendly: We only allow couples and families to overnight.

              Check out time is inconvenient, it's a rush to be out at 9. Very friendly and professionally run resort

              We had a fabulous stay and the river was an excellent break away from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. The kids had a wonderful time in the park and playing tennis on the long stretch of lawn. We would like to ask the owner to think about better entry points to the river without disturbing the environment and the outside staff was friendly. Thank you very much for your hospitality. The Wagenaar Family.

              We loved the plot we had it was central very close to the pool and slide and right next to the volleyball net. The shop is super convenient and cheap! We loved it and the bar, we ran out of alcohol. Our stay was super awesome despite the rainy weather the 2 days. The bathroom was a bit too claustrophobic, too many people in there when showering and at the basin. Keep the pool as is! The temperature was consistent and stayed warm, I even went in at night it was awesome, thought it would be cold but it stayed warm.

              I have been stolen at the campsite (table, chairs, brai stuff and more)The mánager did not say I am sorry. He only said it is my fault not take care of my belowings. I asked for the police and he said it is not a worth. He said is my problem and he recomended to use my insurance (I have not insurance for my camping stuff).They have not any insurance or any safegard.They have been very disapointing. I REALLY DONT RECOMEND THAT PLACE AND THAT PEOPLE.Look the webside of them: only for families and couples (it was on Sunday and plenty of young guys drunked and making party.)VERY DISAPOINTING...
