The 2021 edition of Cape Town’s official Visitors’ Guide is now available and, for the first time, it can be accessed digitally from anywhere at any time.
The guide offers three-day itineraries for visitors who cannot stay longer, provides QR codes throughout that link to informative videos, maps of the entire Cape Peninsula and available transport options, and much more.
In the TravelWise section, readers will find the latest information about health and safety, COVID-19, visas and immigration, weather, money, advice, responsible travel, and locations of Visitor Information Centres. The guide also features a QR code link to download the Namola safety app, which pinpoints the user’s location and offers the appropriate emergency operator to talk to in the case of a safety or medical emergency, free of charge.
“For destinations to succeed, they need to constantly reinvent, while incorporating the uniqueness and authenticity of their products and experiences. With our ten-point tourism strategy, the City aims to help breathe life back into this vital sector, to help tourism flourish and reclaim its status as a significant driver of employment and economic benefits for our residents,” says Mayoral Committee Member for Economic Opportunities and Asset Management, including tourism, Alderman James Vos.
“We are already seeing some positive signs of recovery, with most domestic airlines back in operation, including Mango, FlySafair, Airlink, British Airways, CemAir, kulula and newcomer, Lift. Eight international airlines are now flying direct to Cape Town, with daily flights by Qatar Airways, and Lufthansa recently increasing its direct flights to three times per week.”
“Now, more than ever, we would like to encourage everyone wanting an adventure in Cape Town to make use of this new Visitors’ Guide to support the local industry and safely take advantage of our fantastic, authentic pocket-friendly experiences,” says Enver Duminy, CEO of Cape Town Tourism. “The hidden gems and old favourites of this city are not reserved for tourists only and we hope to see more locals using our Visitors’ Guide to plan some upcoming staycations.”
