South Africa: Western Cape Finance and Economic Opportunities On Tourism Sector Under Level 3


New data shows tourism sector hammered by the Alert Level 3 restrictions

Data from the tourism industry in December unsurprisingly reflects a sector that has been hammered by the Covid-19 pandemic and the related lockdown restrictions with almost all the top attractions in the Western Cape reflecting a more than 60% drop in visitors over the peak tourism season.

This data confirms the desperate state of the tourism and hospitality industry in the Western Cape, and considering the evidence that the Western Cape is passed its peak and the demand on our health services is stabilising, this reinforces the need to relax the Alert Level 3 restrictions that are negatively impacting the economy and resulting in, almost daily, business closures and jobs losses.

Last year, we recognised the importance of a strong summer season for the recovery of the tourism and hospitality industry that had been severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic last year. And so, in the knowledge that it was safe to do so, we worked hard to ensure that the Western Cape was ready to safely welcome both international and domestic visitors, and that the Western Cape was positioned as an attractive destination choice for those looking for wide-open spaces and a variety of affordable and diverse experiences.
