Cape Town and Western Cape ready to welcome 2 million more international tourists

Cape Town and the Western Cape is open for tourism and is ready for a bumper peak season, which promises to be the best yet. International arrivals have grown by an unprecedented 27% year-on-year for the first half of 2017, and we anticipate two million more international passengers this year.

Wesgro commends our stakeholders, the City of Cape Town and the Western Cape provincial government, for the steps they have taken to reduce water consumption and ensure supplies last through the tourist season.

We therefore encourage tourists from the rest of South Africa and abroad to visit our beautiful city and province this year, and be water wise when doing so.

In this regard, we wish to thank all of our partners in the tourism sector that have taken proactive steps to reduce their water demand during this critical time.

For more information on how establishments or guest can contribute to this effort, please see the attached Wesgro infographics.

Interested visitors can also make use of the City of Cape Town’s water-usage calculator, to see how they can get their water usage below 87 litre per person per day.

The Western Cape has many diverse offerings from the Cape Winelands to the Cape Karoo. To find out about what more you can do during this summer season, visit our Discover Cape Town and the Western Cape website.
