Update on Cape Town's water shortage

The executive mayor of Cape Town had warned citizens and prospective visitors that the city is “very likely” to run out of water in April 2018. Fortunately, due to huge water savings of all residents, this never happened.

It is great news and a big relief to tell that the current winter rains are good, and the dams are filling up nicely. At present the dams are more than double as full as last year at the same time. Thus there will be no water shortage in the coming 2018/19 holiday season!

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