Things are looking good for South Africa, and more specifically for Cape Town. The city has been inundated with rain and the dam levels have risen significantly, meaning ‘Day Zero’ has been pushed back to June. This news, along with the news that Cyril Ramaphosa was recently elected as the new president of the country, has given locals hope for a new dawn. We look forward to sharing more good news with you as it continues to rain in Cape Town and along the Garden Route.
If you’ve booked a holiday in the Mother City or you’re planning to visit this year, you’ve chosen a good time to visit! Many of the hotels we make use of use borehole water and do not rely on municipal water, which means that you will always have access to water during your stay. A holiday at one of these hotels has become even more affordable, as they are currently offering great discounts. Please feel free to contact us should you want to know more.
Please note that the rest of South Africa is not experiencing any water issues. From the Garden Route to Durban, Kruger National Park and Madikwe Private Game Reserves, the rest of the country is unaffected. Even though Cape Town is currently experiencing a water shortage, the city is still perfectly safe for all travellers. Business sectors within the city will not be affected should ‘Day Zero’ arrive, and as such most of the hotels, guest houses and B&Bs will not be affected in any way.
If you’re thinking of skipping out on a Cape Town getaway this year, take a minute to think about all the experiences you’ll be missing out on – breathtaking views of Table Mountain, a walk through the beautiful gardens of Kirstenbosch, wine tasting in the city’s surrounds, and afternoon tea at the prestigious Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel. You’d be mistaken to think that avoiding a trip to Cape Town this year is a good idea!
