Norvalspont

The small village of Norvalspont is situated on the junction of the Northern Cape, the Free State and the Eastern Cape borders and is just a short distance from the Gariep Dam, about forty kilometers from Colesberg. More than anything else, the town is infamous for its Concentration Camp, laid out by the British during the Anglo-Boer War in 1901. The camp was used for refugees and misplaced persons with a separate wired off portion for prisoners of war. The bulk of the inhabitants, however were woman and children who were removed from their homes and either taken by ox-wagon or train to the camp. Sometimes they had to walk .

In April 1900 the camp already had 1596 inhabitants. By August of that year the number had inceased to 3215. While the camp was run by the military authorities , it was guarded by sentries. However by March 1901 the camp was under civilian administration that meant that all sentries were withdrawn .The camp’s sanitary arrangements were excellent. The inhabitants bathed in the Orange River and water was laid on from a spring for cooking purposes.

Spectacular sunsets and night skies may be seen from this small village. Visitors can enjoy the clean, crisp, Karoo air while river rafting or horse riding along the Orange River.

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.
