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.

Waterberg Exclusive Retreat Bed & Breakfast, Game Reserve & Bush Lodge Accommodation In Bela-Bela

Set against a backdrop of lush green mountainous vegetation, this game lodge is set in one of South Africa's finest private game reserves.

Only two short hours drive North of Johannesburg this 12000ha of malaria free reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife and birdlife, including the world famous Big Five. Home to some 60 mammals, 300 bird species, 100 plant types and numerous reptile and insect species, here you will find all wildlife - from the 'Big Five' (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) to the 'small five' (ant lion, leopard tortoise, buffalo weaver, elephant shrew and rhino beetle). This is the true African safari experience.

We offer exclusive accommodation in air-conditioned luxury thatched house with 4 bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms that have been designed to offer guests complete comfort and relaxation in this beautiful natural setting. There is also a fifth room with a pull out bed, shower and toilet.

The main house has a kitchen as well as lounge area with TV and DSTV, this opens up onto a large patio overlooking the plain. Guests can enjoy their evenings having a candle-lit boma dinner, under a clear star-filled African sky.

Hot and sunny afternoons can be spent lying around the pool or taking a dip in the 8 seater Jacuzzi.

There is an outdoor patio where guests can enjoy lunches and breakfast under the trees watching wildlife roam the plain.

Services

Daily cleaning, setting up of breakfast, dinners around the boma are available to guests during their stay.

Activities

Highly qualified game rangers with years of experience and knowledge expertly handle all activities. For the wild-at-heart seeker of true bush adventure, nothing could compare with the excitement and thrill of big game viewing on horseback - a unique and close encounter of the wildest kind. Morning and evening game drives are daily highlights. There is also the opportunity to join one of the informative bush walks guided by a highly professional and experienced game ranger. Morning and evening game bush drives are daily highlights - the house has its own game vehicle and game rangers can be organized prior to arrival from lodge.

I would like to thank you for all your assistance with arranging for our accommodation at Mabula. We had such a wonderful time there. We cannot stop talking about how fabulous it was at Mabula and how well equipped the house was. Justine is a real Gem!!! Our family really had a fab time, and are really in Awe of the beauty. We hope that we could visit again one day. Have a super day.
Kind Regards
Shannon Bester and Family.
