AA & AA Travel Guides are developing standards for camping and caravanning sites in South Africa

South Africa's Automobile Association (AA), in cooperation with AA Travel Guides, is currently developing certain standards to assess camping and caravanning sites in South Africa and will then rate them according to the (adjusted) AA Quality Assured (AAQA) standards. The AA Quality Assured (AAQA) standards are currently only used to categorise hotels, lodges, self-catering and B&Bs.
According to Tourism Update the camping and caravan sites will get rated using criterias such as "whether they are a resort with a multitude of facilities; a standard caravan park with minimal facilities; located in the bush, a game or nature reserve; or whether they are suitable for 4x4 or overnight stops."

The AA Quality Assured (AAQA) standards are categorising establishments as follows:
  • AA Recommended > properties satisfy AA stringent minimum requirements.
  • AA Highly Recommended > properties present a product which offers high levels of professionalism and attention to detail in the decor, quality of furnishings and service.
  • AA Superior > properties are pristine and present the traveller with decor and furnishings of exceptional quality together with remarkable levels of professionalism and hospitality.
