Beaufort West

Beaufort West is about 470 km from Cape Town on the N1 national road. It is one of the few towns that the N1 actually runs through, so it's not unusual to see huge trucks thundering down the main street. Beaufort west has an airport located about 10 km's out of town.

The annual rainfall in Beaufort West is more than 150mm, which gives it the name of the "Oasis town" of the Karoo. There is also an Oasis Hotel, situated on the Main Street. Beaufort West is located on the banks of the intermittently flowing Gamka River and at the foot of the Nuweveld Mountains.

Beaufort West was named after the father of the governor of the time, Lord Charles Somerset. His father was the Duke of Beaufort in England. Later Beaufort was changed to Beaufort West to avoid confusion between Fort Beaufort and Port Beaufort located in the eastern cape.

A visit to the Beaufort West Museum Complex in Donkin Street will not disappoint. The complex comprises of three buildings, the old Sendingpastorie, the Sendingkerk and the Stadtshuis.

The Stadtshuis was the first city hall to be built in the Karoo and sports a beautiful fagade decorated with molded plaster. The museum celebrates the achievements of its former inhabitants, the heart surgeon Christiaan Barnard and the late Minister of Foreign Affairs for South Africa, minister Eric Louw.

Beaufort West has several Hotels, a caravan park and camping ground, bed and breakfast accommodations, and a few lodges. Just outside town is the Karoo National park, complete with 4x4 trails. The park has numerous species of wildlife and some interesting fossil and archeological items.

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.
