Some history: The National Department of Tourism developed a standard for responsible tourism which has been published by the South African Bureau of Standards. The South African National Minimum Standard for Responsible Tourism is an effort to establish a common understanding of responsible tourism and also aims to harmonise the different sets of criteria currently utilized for certifying the sustainability of tourism businesses.
More about this as we learn details. We will also be updating the Responsible Tourism South Africa Wiki.
