Africa Institute of Tourism and Field Guiding was established to address three major areas namely Skills Training, Consultancy and Project development.
Since its incorporation in 2017, Africa Institute of Tourism and Field Guiding has been testing ground and recorded tremendous success in the area of skills training and specifically conducted training for field guides and tour operation managers. Little has been done in the areas of Consultancy and Project development. It is worth noting that even in the area of skills training, there has not been a clear curriculum and format followed, the training programs are not formalized and the facilitators are not fully constituted. Despite all these shortcomings, the Africa Institute of Tourism and Field Guiding has enjoyed support from the collaborating partners due to the uniqueness of the training methodology, which is a critical gap in the tourism sector.
