Update on Cape Town's water shortage

The executive mayor of Cape Town has warned citizens and prospective visitors that the city is “very likely” to run out of water in April. After two years of drought which saw rain at about one third of normal levels, reservoirs supplying the city are running dry.

“Tourists should be sensitive that this is a real crisis and they can play their part by acting like responsible Capetonians by conserving water.”

Despite the water shortage, Cape Town remains a stunning holiday destination, and we look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful city and to Acorn House.
