Cape Town open for business

Cape Town and Western Cape remain open to for tourists, despite the destination experiencing a significant drought.

South African Tourism has recommended travellers be mindful of their water usage, but assured that if “Day Zero” is reached and the regular flow of water is cut off, visitors will still have access to “diverse and world-class experiences”.

Bench Africa general manager Martin Edwards said hoteliers have put in place limitations such as removing bath plugs to avoid Day Zero.

“Tourists need to be more like a local due to the scarcity of the water,” he explained. “Cape Town and the Western Cape is all open to business.”
