As South Africans, we are very patriotic and passionate about our sport, braais and our cars, but no vehicle has touched the hearts of South Africans more than a bakkie. Whether you are an adventure junkie, a farmer or family man, you can almost never go wrong with owning a bakkie in SA.
Due to the unpredictable roads, potholes and speed bumps, it can be very beneficial to drive a bakkie. Owning a bakkie or a ‘plaas bakkie’ is as South African as it gets, and has helped generations of South Africans and small and large businesses develop from the ground up. Bakkies have and still do play a large role in the development of our country and remain a reliable and solid option for transportation.
There are many benefits to owning a bakkie as they are extremely good work-horses and designed to be tough and durable. Owning a bakkie gives you the freedom to tackle the roads that you usually would avoid and gives you the confidence to explore the unknown. You can do so much more and go so much further, but make sure that you find the right bakkie for your needs.
Depending on your current situation, there is almost a different type of bakkie for every person and every need. There are bakkies for farmers, business owners, families, young adults, off-road enthusiasts, sport enthusiast and much more.
