Possible Accommodation Business Opportunity

There is a possible project in the works to accommodate Grade 12 learners for a period of time, allowing them to study in a stress free and safe environment. This will in turn also help the tourism industry a little. The budget is still being negotiated but will be in the region of R350 to R400 per learner per day for accommodation and three meals (a simple menu will be supplied).

Thorough pre-arrival health checks and continuous safety procedures will be put in place. If you are interested in participating in the project and hosting learners, please indicate so by answering a few quick questions on the survey below by latest close of business tomorrow 7 May 2020. Further information will be sent early next week to all interested parties and a WhatsApp group will be created for Q&A once there is an official go-ahead for the project.

Please complete the survey ONLY if you can provide accommodation.

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.
