Rich in history, Bergville holds its own against the majestic Drakensberg, inviting tourists to explore the many battlefields, monuments and museums in the area, as well as the the famous Bergville Cannibal Caves. Legend has it that when Shaka's impis rampaged through this area of the Drakensberg in the 1820's, smaller clans fled to caves near Bergville, and were forced to resort to cannibalism to survive.
Another fascinating Bergville attraction is the statue of Susanna Smit at Voortrekker Pass. Known as Kaalvoet Vrou (barefoot woman), she stands immortalised on a dusty path as she walks back over the Drakensberg, rather than live in Natal under British rule.
