The Matjulu River is a short river that rises in the hills to the west of Berg-en-dal Camp and flows east to where it joins the Crocodile River near Malelane Gate.

The river flows past the eastern boundary of Berg-en-Dal where it has been dammed to form a perennial water source. This dam provides good game viewing opportunities from the camp. It is well worth spending a few hours sitting on the benches overlooking the dam and looking out for Waterbuck, Kudu, White Rhino and more.

The Matjulu River flows under the tarred H3 main road 3 km north of Malelane Gate and this is a good spot to look for Buffalo.
