However, there is a non-profit association that represents the private sector of the "incoming tourism industry in South Africa" (which is a large group) called the

South African Tourism Services Association (SATSA),

they are "dedicated to providing and maintaining the highest possible standards in the tourism industry within South Africa ." (SATSA, 2007) SATSA is focused on the accountability, integrity, and quality control of the tourism industry in South Africa as well as with the companies and associations they are connected to. In addition to SATSA, the website responsibletravel.com partnered with The Times, World Travel Market and Geographical Magazine have established the Responsible Tourism Awards. The goal of the award is to "recognize individuals, companies and organizations in the travel industry that are making a significant commitment mto the culture and economies of local communities and are providing a positive contribution to biodiversity conservation."
