Cape Town Promotes Water-Wise Tourism

Much like other successful tourist regions such as Southern California and Western Australia, South Africa’s Western Cape is among the world’s most water-scarce areas.

Vulnerable to climate change effects and susceptible to periodic droughts, the Western Cape is currently going through a significant lack of rainfall.

However, as recently noted by World Travel Market (WTM,) Cape Town and the Western Cape are open for business despite the current drought. “Visitors and delegates will arrive in a place with a significant breadth and depth of experiences, and exceptional beauty, but we encourage you to be mindful of water-wise tourism and business travel when you’re here,” noted a WTM report.

Cape Town has also put up various initiatives to increase the water supply and make provisions for extreme water shortages.
