The Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association is an independent non-profit making body created for the certification of Safari Driver Guides, Lodge Naturalists and other individuals within the Tourism Sector. The KPSGA’s aim is to provide an effective, inexpensive and voluntary certification process giving awards of Bronze, Silver and Gold standards through an examination process.
As a member, can I participate in decision-making for the association?
Yes. We hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM) every year in May, which all members are invited to attend.
AGM's provide members with updates on decisions by the board, financial reports, spending, and the tour-guiding sub-sector overall. They are often attended by representatives of the Tourism Regulatory Authority (TRA), Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), and other relevant bodies with which guides may interact.
AGM's provide an opportunity to see where your membership fees go, and to help steer the association in the direction best suited to its members.
