Nearby Accommodation

Hekpoort

The town of Hekpoort is situated on the southern slopes of the Magaliesberg Mountain, only a few minutes drive from the Hartebeespoort Dam. Hekpoort is accessible from the south via a pass through the Daspoortrand. The author Vincent Garruthers wrote a book called The Magaliesberg and in the book he describes how Gert Kruger, brother of president Paul Kruger, was appointed commandant of the districts of Moorivier and Magaliesberg in the 1800s. During his appointment he established the farm, Hekpoort in the Moot Valley, this was around 1845. The land that Hekpoort was established on belonged to Chief Mogale wa Mogale.

During the Boer War, the British attempted to clear the valley and foothills below the range, these attempts were reinforced by the establishment of fortified outposts. One at the foot of the Hekpoort pass is still intact today and is preserved as national monument. Built in 1901 under the direction of Lieutenant-General Barton, it was nicknamed Bartons Folly. It is suggested that because it differed from the typical two storied blockhouses of the time it was therefore something other than what it appeared to be, it was called a folly.

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.
