Becoming a Founder Member

FOUNDER MEMBERSHIP

Waterberg Tourism’s further growth and operational costs will be covered by membership fees (as an NPO, no business dealings will be done that will allow the company to generate a profit).  The purpose of the company is social, not commercial, as it aims to develop and support the Waterberg communities.

  • Founder members are members who join up during the first 8 months of the NPO’s launch, and whose donations are fundamental in the growth of Waterberg Tourism for the community and tourism sector.
