Cape Town Tourism says the peak season for leisure visitors is in full swing and that this festive season will be as busy if not busier than our last. According to CEO Enver Duminy, they are pleased with the industry’s forecasts and outlook for the festive season and remain cautiously optimistic about year on year growth over this period.
“It’s been a challenging year for many in the tourism industry; determined particularly by the socio-political and economic climate, not to mention some of the environmental issues we have had to face. And still – tourism has endured and promises a good holiday season”, says Duminy.
Cape Town’s busiest tourist attraction, the V&A Waterfront, has already reported a 7 to 8% growth in visitor numbers compared to previous years.
Actual festive season performance figures will be available and released at the end of January.
