While there has been some good rainfall in drought-stricken Cape Town recently, water restrictions continue as locals aim to evade Day Zero.
Most locals have learned to cope with their share of 50 litres of water per person daily, but how have international guests been impacted?
Cape Town Tourism caught up with some international visitors at Cape Town International Airport before they headed back home and asked them to share their experiences while staying in the Mother City. Watch the video shared by Cape Town Tourism to hear what tourists had to say.
Enver Duminy, CEO at Cape Town Tourism, says that “The panic around water shortages may have galvanised tourism professionals into action and it has produced some fine, innovative responses.”
He adds that this has also led to greater sustainability in tourism that addresses the needs of visitors, the tourism industry, environment and host communities.
“The welcome mat is out for all explorers and adventurers looking to experience a world-class destination with unique attractions and culture. Come and see for yourself and join us in practicing sustainable tourism so that Cape Town can be enjoyed for generations to come,” adds Duminy.
