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.

Woodlands Bush Lodge Self Catering Accommodation In Hoedspruit District

This lovely 8 sleeper self-catering bush lodge is situated in the heart of the secure Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate, apart from any neighbours and facing onto open bushlands, ensuring the ultimate in a private bush living experience. A watering hole outside of the low level game fence (to keep out the warthogs who believe the garden is the ideal al fresco dining venue), sees Zebra, Nyala, Giraffe, Kudu and Impala amble past quite nonchalantly as you soak up the atmosphere.

Within the lodge environs, you can swing under the trees in a hammock for two, cool off in the pool, enjoy the magnificent view from the patio, or relax in the lounge with a good book. Both wood and gas braais, as well as a fully fitted and equipped kitchen and a full DSTV bouquet complete the package of this lovely escape from the busy outside world. Woodlands Lodge has four fully equipped bedrooms with air-conditioning (two with queen beds and two with singles) and four bathrooms which is separate from the main living area.

On the estate there are many and varied game drive and cycle routes, dams and watering holes with hides from which to view the free roaming animal population of impala, kudu, zebra, giraffe, warthog, eland, wildebeest, waterbuck [to name a few] and over 170 bird species providing ample opportunity for good photos. Your hosts are resident on the Estate and are available to advise on local conditions, best restaurants, local events and features, to help maximise your enjoyment.

Hoedspruit is part of Greater Kruger Area with the Kruger National Parks Orpen gate only 40 min drive away, with local attractions such as endangered species rehabilitation centres, elephant back safaris, hot air ballooning, Jessica the hippo, the silk farm and much more! The Panorama Route features sites such as the Three Rondavels, Blyde River Canyon, Bourke's Luck Potholes, God's Window, World's View, The Pinnacle, Lisbon – and Berlin Falls and Graskop Gorge - all within a 1.5 hr day-trip from the Estate.

Activities on offer in the areas include: fishing & boating on Klaserie Dam, Blydepoort dam game viewing excursions, white river rafting on the Blyde River or in the Olifants gorge, and the option of two golf courses (Hoedspruit Drakensig Club [9-hole], Hans Merensky [18-hole]. Flying safaris are also available locally.

Hot and dry weather is the norm during the day, with temperatures regularly reaching and exceeding 35 degrees, while the evenings can be chilly. The lodge is fully air-conditioned in order to ensure a pleasant experience. Sunscreen is a must if you are outdoors for any extended period. Hoedspruit and Kruger are malaria areas in summer months only, and the lodge comes equipped with electrical mosquito repellents, as well as anti-mosquito lotions and citronella candles for sitting outside at night. Hoespruit village offers banks, supermarkets, butchery, chemist, liquor shop, restaurants, day-spa, coffee shops, sushi bar and tourist shops.

The standard arrival and departure times are 14:00 and 10:00 respectively, however if needed your hosts will accommodate alternative times where possible.

Hoedspruit can be reached by road or air. Eastgate Airport is just 16km from the estate and there are two daily flights to and from Johannesburg.
