EXCELLENT INVESTMENT FARM WITH VARIOUS OPPORTUNITIES…….

  • The Karoo is one of the world’s most unique, arid zones. In South Africa it stands alone, globally it is an envied rarity.
  •  
  • Situated in the western parts of the Eastern Cape, Steytlerville is the home of peace and tranquillity. Here one can rest, relax, refresh yourself and recharge the inner batteries of your soul, while exploring, enjoying yourself and indulging your need for some unusual entertainment.
  •  
  • Nature has endowed Steytlerville with exceptional beauty and it is known for its astonishing variety of semi-desert vegetation which includes dwarf shrubs, tiny succulents, umbrella-shaped wild plum trees and ancient cycads.
  •  
  • Steytlerville lies in the heartland of the mohair production area. The Angora goats, which produce the mohair, thrive in the natural Karoo scrub and dry climate which is perfect for mohair production. Port Elizabeth, which lies south-east of Steytlerville, is known as the Mohair Capital of the World because most of the mohair that is produced internationally passes through its brokerage and processing systems.
  •  
  • The surrounding area that adjoins Port Elizabeth has developed an agri-tourism product known as the Mohair Meander. Tourists are encouraged to visit working mohair farms and see how products associated with mohair are made, and to share in the Karoo lifestyle of the area that produces this rare natural fibre. Several outlets along this route sell mohair products.
  •  
  • Steytlerville lies at the entrance to the eastern parts of the Baviaanskloof and showcases a host of architectural gems like quaint Edwardian- and Victorian-era houses with tin roofs and large street-facing verandas complete with broekie lace and stained-glass windows.
  •  
  • One of the best towns the Karoo has to offer, Steytlerville with its bougainvillea-lined streets and horse-drawn carts is a diamond waiting to be discovered. It comes as no surprise then that the town is home to several South African personalities, as a holiday in this town easily leads to relocation.
