Guest House Accommodation of South Africa (GHASA)

Guest House Accommodation of South Africa (GHASA) consists of a nationwide network of professionally run guest houses, B&B’s and self catering accommodation.

GHASA was established in 1992 when a group of establishment owners got together to promote the guest house industry.

In 2000, GHASA became a private company, known as Guest House Association of SA (Pty) Limited, also incorporating the Self-Catering Registry of SA.

Incompass Insurance is proud to have been appointed a preferred supplier of GHASA.
