Tourism Sector Ready for Business in Western Cape

Cape Town and Western Cape travel and tourism industry heavyweights have given assurances they are open for business and forging ahead with plans for tourism growth following management of the area’s drought crisis.

The region’s rapid and pragmatic response to the drought through crisis management from both public and private enterprise has shown the world it is possible to build a sustainable, water-wise destination.

In the last three years alone, the City of Cape Town has reduced its water usage by nearly 60 percent, setting a new world-class standard.

A variety of initiatives have provided confidence, ranging from alternative water sources becoming available and early winter rains seeing a steady increase in dam water levels, coupled with locals and local businesses adopting water-sensible lifestyles.
