Alexandra’s Africa has begun the journey towards full certification under the Global Sustainable Tourism Council criteria. As an individual, Alexandra was awarded the Council’s Certificate in Sustainable Tourism in 2018. She intends to complete certification for the company as a whole by the end of 2020.
Alexandra’s Africa adheres to the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) Criteria which were created to provide a common understanding throughout the world of “sustainable tourism”, and are the minimum that any tourism business should aspire to reach. The criteria are organized around four main pillars above. They have applicability to the entire tourism industry.
