As the city manages the impact of water shortages, the City of Cape Town's official regional tourism organisation, responsible for destination marketing, visitor and industry services, Cape Town Tourism, recently asked international visitors what they had experienced. The responses, which can be seen in a relevant video on youtube, were positive and upbeat and Cape Town Tourism continues to lay out the welcome mat:

Enver Duminy, CEO, Cape Town Tourism

“The panic around water shortages may have galvanised tourism professionals into action and it has produced some fine, innovative responses, but we are also noting the effects on the attendant elements of sustainability as defined by UNWTO, the current and future economic, social and environmental impacts of tourism, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the 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.”
