AA Quality Assured Recommended, Highly Recommended and Superior establishments are visited and assessed by our highly trained assessors. The properties which are associate members are endorsed on the strength of their membership of the National Star Grading System or being part of a group.
AA Recommended properties satisfy our stringent minimum requirements. Highly Recommended properties present a product which offers high levels of professionalism and attention to detail in the decor, quality of furnishings and service.
AA Superior properties are pristine and present the traveller with decor and furnishings of exceptional quality together with remarkable levels of professionalism and hospitality.
AA Eco properties are in game and nature reserves.
It is the vision of the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa that a process of quality assurance is continuously sought, across the many tourism facilities and services offered to the consumer.
It is hoped that this process is a collaborative one, with as much voluntary participation as is possible, from all businesses seeking to showcase their products in this vibrant industry.
The grading council also seeks to increase consumer confidence and involvement in the process, in doing so, enhance the marketing value of the overall system. This will lead and hopefully assist in the development of grading criteria across all the facilities and services offered by the South African tourism industry, now and into the future.
