About the NFTGA

The Federation aims primarily to represent all tourist guides, and to champion their causes within the greater tourism industry.

In order to do this effectively and within the legal framework, tour operators, guide trainers, specialists and various guide associations, industry bodies such as SATSA, and parastatals such as SANPARKS, have been brought onboard as members of the steering committee.

Steering committee

The current steering committee has been chosen to promote the stated aims of the NFTGA, and to assist in setting up the Federation, while promoting collaboration between the various sectors of the greater Tourism SA family.

Various industry role-players were selected to create an inclusive body that represents the broader guiding community (the members), while ensuring that dialogue is open and transparent to government, guide associations, tour operators, industry associations, accredited guide training service providers and other interested parties that will be invited to join as affiliates.
