Steytlerville

For many years Steytlerville is also known as "Sakkies". 
The most popular telling of how the name came about originated from an event where a group of boys from the town gathered on the show grounds waiting for the arrival of a Mr Makepeace to point out where their campsite would be.  The boys were all lined up with their kit in front of them.  Bags which held supplies for their camping competition. Someone made a comment and is quoted as saying, “Kyk net al die sakkies. Die mense sal sê ons kom van Sakkies Dorp".
The little character "Sakkies", our profile picture, was created as part of the marketing campaign for the “Dorp van die Jaar” competition in 2013 with M-nets’ Kwêla and Rapport.    The mascot will also be used to convey several messages about environmental conservation and town pride to the community.

So How did Steytlerville get its nickname, Sakkies?

Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area

Please note that certain parts of the Baviaanskloof Road (within the Wilderness Area) are not suitable for sedan vehicles and small LDVs.

Most of the establishments listed on this website, however, can be reached with sedan cars since the problem stretch of road is located in the middle.

Provided you enter from the direction closest to your destination you will therefore be OK.  Be safe and phone ahead to enquire and remember to drive carefully, whatever vehicle you use.
