Geography and History

The little town of Steynsburg, situated deep in the sheep farming territory of the Eastern Cape’s Karoo and nestled in a ring of mountains and koppies, is being re-discovered by people looking for a different lifestyle...

Founded in 1872, Steynsburg is situated in a valley surrounded by mountains in the Eastern Karoo. Interestingly President Paul Kruger lived on neighbouring farm “Bulhoek” during his early years and the house still stands there. The Old Age Home in town is named after Marais Steyn who matriculated at the Paul Kruger High School here and went on to become a Member of Parliament and an Ambassador. 

At an altitude of 1460 metres, the pollution-free climate offers a very healthy lifestyle – hot summers, cold clear winter days, sufficient rainfall , sometimes even snow, beautiful sunsets and brilliant star-filled night skies.

 

Activities

There are a range of facilities in Steynsburg – shops, cafes, restaurants, banks, a post office, a library, a farmers’ co-operative, a filling station, a garage, a small hospital and a clinic.

The Steynsburg Country Club has a nine-hole golf course, a well kept bowling green, a gymnasium and the Club house bar. The club kitchen and hall are used for a variety of community functions and gatherings. There are active garden and art clubs and the dormant Tennis Club is awaiting revival.

Southern coast resorts such as Port Alfred, Port Elizabeth, Plett and Knysna are a half day’s drive away as is Bloemfontein to the North. The Wild Coast is reachable within a day’s daylight drive.
