Water Situation in Cape Town, South Africa
Washington D.C.: Whilst the City of Cape Town and surrounding areas in South Africa are experiencing water shortages, authorities are implementing a variety of measures (in the short, medium and long term) to address the situation.
In spite of water usage restrictions having been imposed by local authorities on industrial as well as domestic usage, this is having a minimal impact on tourists’ experience of the affected areas. No effort is being spared in a move to avert the taps running dry.
Tourists are encouraged to proceed with their plans to visit South Africa, including the affected areas. South Africa remains an attractive, value-for-money destination and all tourist related industries have put measures in place to avoid inconveniencing visitors.
