The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) has updated the travel advice for South Africa in response to the ongoing water shortage:
“The Western Cape is suffering from prolonged drought. The Cape Town municipal region is most severely affected and water restrictions are in place. If you’re planning to travel to the area, you should be mindful of water consumption and comply with local restrictions.
The City of Cape Town has cautioned that these restrictions may become more severe in April and after that period you shouldn’t assume an unrestricted supply of potable water. You should follow the information and guidance for visitors and the latest projections on water supply.”
