Gourikwa Reserve Hotel & Resort Accommodation In Gouritsmond

The estate was proclaimed a private nature reserve in 1995. It is the largest private nature reserve along the South African coastline. It extends over 2455 hectares (6066 acres) and stretches 5 km along the Indian Ocean. The reserve is fully fenced along its 15 km perimeter and is only accessible via two gated entrances.

Well preserved ancient fish traps and shell middens are situated along the reserve's coastline and pay testament to our great heritage. The fish traps date back to the Later Stone Age people (Khoikhoi) who roamed the coastline about 2000 years ago.

A walk up Buffelskop (212 m - the highest point on the reserve) offers a magnificent view of the entire coastline, the light house and a vast undulating inland landscape.

PROPERTY FEATURES

The Ystervark Punt Lighthouse, part of the South African National Ports Authority's network, is an iconic feature on the Western part of the estate. This automatic lighthouse was first commissioned on 4th August 1964 and rebuilt in 2006. It stands 21 metres tall with a rotating light (605.000 candle powers) with a range of 24 sea miles.

Various species of game have been reintroduced to the reserve in the late 90's. Species include a large herd of Eland (approximately 30) and 14 endangered Cape Mountain Zebra.  Species that occur in the area naturally are Bushbuck, Honey badger, Caracal and the African Wildcat. Studies are underway to determine which species may occur on the reserve due to the Fynbos biome.
The reserve has its own slipway which allows launching small and medium-sized boats.

Large open areas (tarred and grass) at the main centre provide for comfortable helicopter landing.

Ample fresh water resources are available from boreholes and fountains.

SITUATED

Gourikwa private nature reserve is situated along one of the world most breathtaking coastlines - the Garden Route, known as South Africa's safe haven. It is famed for its scenic beauty and abundant biodiversity. Located halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, the estate is easily accessible via George airport and the N2 (national road).

Two world-renown golf courses, namely The Links at Fancourt (George) and Pinnacle Point (Mossel Bay), are within a 30-60 minute drive by car.

Along the Garden Route you have access to The Garden Route National Park, shark cage diving, deep sea fishing, bungee jumping, hiking the famous Otter Trail and whale watching, to name a few local attractions.

Mossel Bay (situated 40 km east of the reserve) is factually recorded in the Guiness Books of Records as the second mildest climate in the world, after Hawaii.

Gourikwa Reserve offers scenic routes for hiking as well as mountain biking and provides great opportunities for bird watching.

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.
