This paper examines the conditions for the development of a theoretical model of transnomadic authenticity in Kazakhstani tourism encounters using a grounded theory methodology. The article starts with a literature review addressing authenticity and mobility in cultural heritage tourism. Four factors undergoing dynamic and interactive changes determining the qualifying dimensions of transnomadic authenticity are detailed: ‘neo-nomadic tourism culture’, ‘tourists as global nomads’, ‘Kazakhstani eco-cultural tourism encounters’ and ‘hosts-guests relationships and exchanges’. The article presents an original approach to examining the processes that ground various stakeholders’ authentication positions in the understanding of a destination’s cultural heritage.
