CapeNature and the Western Cape’s official Tourism, Trade and Investment Promotion Agency, Wesgro, have announced the popular nature reserves will remain closed during Level 3 restrictions.
Locals are being encouraged to plan their return to the Cape’s beautiful natural landscapes once lockdown restrictions are lifted further.
Wesgro has launched the innovative “One Day” campaign to virtually showcase the province to those in lockdown in South Africa, and around the world. This is a reminder that soon, Cape Town and the Western Cape will once again be open to explore and experience.
Tim Harris, CEO of Wesgro said, “This campaign was derived to keep Cape Town and the Western Cape as a prime destination, to find new avenues for tourism amid an unprecedented crisis, and to support local guides, many of whom are out of work right now. There is also a desire for people who want to get back to nature, and who want to bring the outdoors, indoors while they’re in lockdown. The “One Day” campaign enables us all to dream of the day when we’ll be exploring our most beloved places with our loved ones again.”
CapeNature will support the campaign by encouraging visitors to book now for a later date. Services at the popular reserves are halted due to tourism restrictions but they are ready to once again welcome visitors as soon as lockdown ends.
“We encourage the public to stay home and stay safe, while taking this time to reminisce and plan for the next CapeNature experience. Our teams on the ground are working diligently to put in place measures to ensure visitors return to a safe and trusted environment,” said CapeNature CEO Dr Razeena Omar.
CapeNature reserves are among the most ideal locations for social distancing while supporting local affordable getaway offerings.
