The association said the AGM was attended by 42% of TAN members as well as other stakeholders such as HAN, NTA, NTB, and tour operators. The meeting was also attended by a delegation from the Botswana Tour Guides Association as a benchmarking exercise and to eradicate the boundaries between neighbouring countries. In response the new TAN exco said it will nurture this relationship and soon pay a return visit to Botswana. The association also intends to establish relationships with similar bodies in other neighbouring countries.
The Tourist Guides Association of Namibia was established in 1994 to represent its members and to promote and maintain the highest standards of professionalism amongst tourguides.
