Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.
On registration, we issue them with a member number.
They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.

Wilderness

Wilderness is a beautiful town nestled between thickly forested hills and cliffs on the one side and a system of spectacular waterways, lakes, and lagoons along the coast. In the centre of the Wilderness National Park there is a rest camp that hires out paddleboats, row-boats, and canoes. At the camp a shop is available.

The town itself is situated at the mouth of the Touws River, where hippo's once used to play in the mud-holes. Wilderness is a very popular holiday resort and caters for every kind of tourist.

Hikers wont be disappointed by the 10-kilometer(6 mile) Pied Kingfisher trail which covers the river, marshes and lagoon. While hiking you will be able to see five of the ten kingfisher species of South Africa. For the bird-watchers there are two hides available in Upper-Langvlei and Rondevlei, which are located in the wilderness wetland marshes and draws birds from all over the country.

The wilderness lakes provide excellent opportunities for watersports like swimming, sailing, and waterskiing. Canoeists can explore the lagoon and channels. Surfers will enjoy the excellent waves and fishermen wont be disappointed by the ample fishing opportunities.

Over the years Wilderness has become a popular honeymoon destination. According to legend when George Bennet of Cape Town wanted to get married, his bride said yes on the condition that they live in Wilderness. He bought the whole area in 1877 for 500 english pounds and had to struggle to clear away some the forest just so that he could build a house. A real wilderness.
