"A bustling urban development situated in a sea of grasslands interrupted by rounded granite kopjes" - this is how a travel writer summed up the city of Pietersburg.

Pietersburg, capital of the Northern Province, is the largest metropolitan complex in the north and a major economic centre. Its proximity to the neighbouring countries of Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mocambique and Swaziland, as well as its convenient distance from the Kruger National Park and Magoebaskloof, makes it a perfect gateway and good destination in itself.

The town was established in 1886 after the Voortrekkers had to seek a healthier and safer area south of the Soutpansberg Mountains and Piet Joubert found the highland plateau above the town of Potgietersrus ideal. It soon became an important staging point for destinations to the north. When gold was discovered at Eersteling in 1871, the economy of the town grew and flourished.

In earlier times the open grasslands and hills of the central region were inhabited by nomadic tribes. The Zulu general Mzilikazi who fled from the Zulu king Shaka, will have travelled through the area on his way north to establish a kingdom in Bulawayo.

Although it is about 120 years old, Pietersburg (named after the well-known Boer general Piet Joubert) is a fast-growing and modern city, given its proximity to Gauteng and the rich agricultural district surrounding it. It is a lively city with a good infrastructure and amenities. It offers many different attractions with a number of museums and historical sites presenting the history and cultural heritage of the northern territory.

It is also a city of art and culture. Apart from its extensive art collection, the city has more public sculptures per capita in its parks than anywhere else in South Africa. At the Bakone Malapa Open-Air museum the traditional ways of the Bakone come to life. Museums, a bird sanctuary, game reserve, hiking trails and outdoor recreation areas, complete the picture.

The Pietersburg Game Reserve conserves one of the last remaining, undisturbed examples of a very localised vegetation type known as the Pietersburg Plateau false grassland. Within this vegetation type there are several interesting plant communities ranging from Acacia thickets to open red grass plains. It is around these open grasslands that one finds a very localised bird species known as the short-clawed lark. Another interesting feature is the mountain aloe forest on the northern slope of a low ridge.

Specialized excursions such as industrial tours (visiting dairy processing, an arts and craft factory and cool-drink manufacturers), cultural village and township tours, art weekends, adventure, golfing and 4x4 trails, and many more are organised from the Pietersburg Marketing Company.

Some of the most significant landmarks in the area are the impressive University of the North and the Zion City at Moria. This is the seat of the Zion Christian Church, an entirely black denomination with the largest following in South Africa. During Easter Weekend each year, millions of followers congregate here.

Despite its position on the tropic of Capricorn, the climate is superb because the city is on a plateau thirteen hundred metres above sea level. Average temperatures reaching a high of 27°C in summer and 20°C in winter permit outdoor living all year round.

Pietersburg, today encompassing the vibrant community of Seshego, boasts excellent accommodation, an airport with international status, including immigration and customs facilities, and a busy, friendly population.

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.

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.
