Bergville is a small town of South Africa and is know as the gateway to the Northern Drakensberg. Bergville hosts an office of the Drakensberg Publicity Association. The third Friday of each month sees the local cattle sales. Less than 50km from the towering Amphitheatre of Royal Natal, this ideally-situated agricultural and trading centre of Bergville was laid out in 1897 by a retired sea captain. British forces built a blockhouse in the settlement two years later at the onset of the Anglo-Boer War - that building is now a Monument and Museum within the grounds of the Bergville Court House.
