Bergville was established in 1897, serving as an agricultural center to the region with cattle farming being the primary source of sustainable income with related dairy products following the industry.
The suburb is not large but the important amenities are in place and the property values are driven by demand for what can be described as country style living.
The architecture of the homes in the town is mixed with modern colonial, conventional and a number of thatch roof homes which are spacious and invite the outdoors inside.
The town has the added feature of having a myriad of tourist attractions which means there are a number of lodges, guest houses, health spas and Bed and Breakfasts which diversifies the property use and brings a secondary source of sustainable income to the town.
Schools in the town are well established. These include Bergville Primary School, Monument Primary School, Egerton Primary School and Scripture Union Private Schools.
The ideal setting close to the Tugela River is also a major benefit to the town and region which adds to the tourist attraction.
Tourist attractions in close proximity to Bergville include Bushman’s Nek, Drakensberg Gardens, Oliviershoek Pass Area and Royal Natal National Park.
For adventure seekers the Drakensberg Mountains offer endless entertainment, including Cathedral Peak Hiking Trail and Amphitheater Hiking Trail. The town of Bergville serves as a close by exploration base.
The Tugela Falls is a point of dispute as no one can decide whether it is the tallest waterfall in the world, either way the natural beauty in the town and region should not be missed.
