CONDUCTED BY

University of Pretoria: Department of Historical and Heritage Studies

TOPIC:  HARMONISATION OF TOURISST GUIDE TRAINING IN SOUTH AFRICA

Tourist guiding, being a professional activity, is one that requires appropriate training in order to achieve the required standards which are set by professional bodies. The ultimate goal of the study is to develop a potential framework that outlines a harmonised training, accreditation and registration system for possible cross-border tourist guides in the southern African region. In addition to the three-terraced solution in terms of the alignment of training in the seven southern Africa countries, the study also introduces “tourismscapes” as a model for cross-border tourism.
