The small town of Bergville, known as the gateway to the Northern Drakensberg, lies on the upper Tugela River, only 50 kilometers from the towering cliffs of the Drakensberg.

This ideally situated agricultural and trading centre was laid out in 1897 by a retired sea captain. On the third Friday of each month the local cattle sales are held. It is a dairy centre and the nearest town to Mont-au-Sources and Mweni.

A blockhouse in the town, within the grounds of tthe Bergville Court House, built by the British during the Anglo-Boer war, is a monument and museum.
