TOURISM: Drought Won't Deter Tourists From Karoo

 



Recent Western Cape Business News

Following a myriad of reports of an extreme drought and water shortage at the gateway town of Beaufort West, local government and tourism authorities are assuring visitors that Beaufort West, like other Cape Karoo towns, has enough water to take them through to the rain season.

The Municipality of Beaufort West has put a water management scheme in place, so that they will have sufficient water for future use. Currently the daily usage is equal to the water that is currently being pumped from 33 boreholes around the town. The purification of waste water, which comes into operation later in December 2010, will alleviate the situation.

We would like to ensure visitors to our town that accommodation establishments and businesses will not be affected by the water restrictions.” Says Beaufort West Tourism Officer, Sascha Klemm.

Finance, Economic Development and Tourism MEC, Alan Winde, is committed to work together with his agriculture counterpart to ensure that all issues pertaining to this matter are managed in an integrated manner and encourages tourists to visit the region.

Cape Town Routes Unlimited CEO, Calvyn Gilfellan, further comments about the importance of the Cape Karoo region complimenting the diverse tourism offering in the Western Cape: “Given that tens of thousands of people use the Beaufort West Gateway to venture into tourism destinations like Matjiesfontein, Prins Albert and the rest of the province; the impression that we make at the entry points is of critical importance. We are working with the local municipality and tourism roleplayers on a festive season welcome campaign in Beaufort West to ensure that this happens.”
