Mariental

Almost half way between Namibia's capital, Windhoek and Keetmanshoop in the South you will find the town of Mariental. Mariental is the administrative and commercial capital of the Hardap Region in southern Namibia, and supports several economic industries, including ranching, an ostrich abattoir and large scale irrigated farming. The irrigated farming is made possible by the regions 2 main water supplies, the Fish River and Hardap Dam. The town stands on the edge of the Kalahari Desert, but because of the irrigation systems in place it is able to support crops of cotton, wheat, lucerne, maize, grapes, tomatoes and a variety of garden vegetables. Mariental is home to a large population of Nama-speaking people, descendants of the early Khoi inhabitants of Namibia. The people of Mariental are known for their big smiles and hospitality.

Originally known as Zara-gaebia (dusty), Mariental was named after the area's first colonial settler, Herman Brandt, who named it Marie's Valley, after his wife, Anna Maria Mahler. He'd purchased the land from Nama chief Hendrik Witbooi in 1890. Over the years that followed up until 1907 the area was became a battleground between colonial and Nama forces, and quite a few German civilians died in guerrilla raids. 1912 saw the introduction of a railway through the town and Mariental's resident's petitioned for village status, but the German surrender to the South African Defence Force in 1915 put an end to this petition. Their wish was however granted in 1920, when with the construction of Namibia's first Dutch Reformed Church Mariental was awarded village status. It was later proclaimed a municipality in 1946.

Although mainly a place to refuel or an overnight stopover, Mariental is still home to the Hardap Dam which does attract its fair share of bird lovers and small boats enthusiasts. The dam is also the largest reservoir in Namibia, with a water surface of about 25 square kilometres, a capacity of 320 million cubic metres and an 86.2 metre long dam wall. There are also a few private game reserves in the area including, the Intu Afrika Kalahari Private Game Reserve, the Hardap Game Reserve and the Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch. For those interested in safaris or hunting, Mariental boasts some of the best experiences in Namibia with available game including springbuck, blesbuck, giraffe, ostrich, leopard, zebra, kudu, gemsbuck, hartebeest, eland, blue and black wildebeest.

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.
