Tourists make a positive impact on Cape Town’s water situation

“Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities on earth and water restrictions don’t change that. Many hotels have set up independent water sources, citizens have cut water usage by 60%, and there is no interruption to famous Cape tourist attractions such as Table Mountain, Kirstenbosch Gardens, Robben Island and the V&A Waterfront.”
– Marco van Embden, CEO of Timeless Africa Safaris

Cape Town is experiencing water shortages due to a 1-in-a-100-year drought, but visitors to the city are currently offsetting their water usage in all kinds of positive ways. At Timeless Africa Safaris, our priority is to ensure that our guests’ comfort, safety, enjoyment and experiences are incredible, all in a water-wise way.

Now you can offset your water footprint by calculating your usage and making an equivalent donation to NGOs driving water-saving initiatives, thereby making a long-term difference: Water Usage Calculator »

Tourism is a vital part of this vibrant city, and we all look forward to welcoming all visitors with open arms!
