Even though South Africa is experiencing a regrowth in the number of cases, the city of Cape Town is determined to keep domestic tourism afloat. The home to Table Mountain, one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, will reinforce its biosecurity measures as a way to provide security for visitors.
Mayco Member for Economic Opportunities and Asset Management, James Vos, stated that “the safety of our people and our tourists must be our priority. Our shared goal must be to flatten the Covid-19 curve urgently, so that these new restrictions can be lifted and we can once again focus on rebuilding this vital industry.”
The city of Cape Town recently announced the creation of the Tourism Task Team, which aims to help and support the tourism industry “while also focusing on our future prospects, are constantly implementing measures to drive the various stages of recovery and readiness” stated Vos.
