Services & Companies recommended by SA-Venues.com
The Team at SA-Venues.com are frequently asked by Advertisers whom we recommend for various services. We have been promoting South Africa via the world-wide-web for over 14 years and have, over the years, gained valuable first-hand experience with and/or received a lot of feedback from our advertisers about various service providers. On this page we have listed a few that we have consistently heard good feed back about and are happy to endorse and recommend the following companies to our advertisers.
A requirement of advertising any accommodation establishment on the SA-Venues.com site, be it an Hotel, Guest House, Bed and Breakfast or Self Catering Accommodation is that the Establishment be a registered, accredited accommodation provider.
Our preferred and recommended association is the Guest House Association of South Africa (known in short as GHASA). Their service offers many benefits. For us at SA-Venues.com the major benefit is that overseas visitors easily identify with the GHASA logo, are aware that the establishment they are considering booking with is a credible, assessed establishment and therefore their confidence in booking with that establishment is high. Over and above this the Association offers their members numerous additional value added services (marketing, advice and friendly, accessible staff) so it is a worthwhile investment getting your accommodation registered with GHASA.

The Cape Town Green Map is available in print. The print version - a handy snapshot in time of green Cape Town - is available as a free download. You can also pick up a free copy from your local Cape Town Tourism Visitor Information Centre, so if you run a Bed & Breakfast or offer accommodation in Cape Town, this is an ideal leaflet to add as a room drop.
The print map, printed on SAPPI sponsored triple green paper, gives an overview of green Cape Town by combining a number of visitable sites such as nature reserves, local organic markets, responsible accommodation, where to eat and shop organic, local recycling drop-off sites and more. It’s aim is to remind both residents of Cape Town and visitors to the Mother city to live, work and play responsibly so as to reduce our impact on the fragile ecosystems within the city.
