Changes are planned for the God's Window view site. I noticed a poster at the site for some changes which would seem to be major!
Have a look and see what I mean http://www.sefsa.net/skywalk-project-gods-window/ ! A restaurant and visitor complex with an elevated glass cantilever walkway proposed that will take guests over the gorge with a drop of 600 meters beneath them. My only concern is the exact positioning of the project. I love the area and especially the wonderful array of plants and would hate to see wholesale excavations destroying the ambience and natural beauty of the place!

Notice: Regarding Concessions/Conditional Registration for Tourist Guides
On instruction from the National Department of Tourism (NDT) the National Registrar of Tourist Guide I hereby inform you that conditional registration is no longer valid with immediate effect.
The concession letter dated 16 April 2004 authorized by the National Registrar at the time will no longer enable any individual to register as guide without the relevant accreditation certificate from CATHSSETA.
At a meeting held by some of the executives at the 2013 Indaba the decision was taken to put the Federation of South African Tourist Guide Associations FSATGA on ice untill a better strategy on professionalisation can be framed .
Johan Van Biljon treasurer of FSATGA resigned out of the post in March 2013 due to the non direction of FSATGA and the change of tack of the NDT .
The subsequent resignation of Fanie Terblanche handed over the reigns to Alushca Richie
With Voortrekker monument instituting their new rules on producing your credentials as guide before you may enter the monument has taken off with great enthusiasm , the GGA monitors were at the museum on the 2 May 2013 to help with this task and promote legal guiding, but like Murphy's law there were only three coaches and all of them had registered guides on board ,quite a few tourists traveling on their own. The GGA monitors will on a regular basis help and promote legal guiding .
