Cape Town's Current Water Restrictions

Cape Town is currently experiencing a serious drought. Some travelers may be wary of visiting the area due to the present situation. We are advising our travelers not to let this news deter them from visiting this wonderful part of South Africa – Cape Town is still open for business.

The City of Cape Town has put a number of initiatives and water restrictions in place to curb the chance of reaching “Day Zero” – the day that water supply to areas across the city (excluding the CBD) is disrupted. However, if residents make a conscious effort to curb water usage and adhere to the required water saving targets, Day Zero can be avoided.

Due to huge water saving efforts, and thanks to good winter rains,  the Western Cape government have projected that Day Zero will be avoided in 2018 and that the city of Cape Town will have an adequate supply of water for 2019 as well.  This is all thanks to this year's great early winter rains as well as the continued efforts of residents and visitors to conserve water use.

Visitors to the city are asked to be mindful of the drought and observe restrictions while still enjoying the city.

Wesgro – The Official Tourism, Trade & Investment Promotion Agency for Cape Town and the Western Cape – released an official statement on the current water situation complete with FAQs. Read the full statement below:
