More people visited Cape Town during its winter months this year than last year, according to new figures.
The beautiful beaches of Camps Bay and the sun-soaked Table Mountain mean that Cape town is a popular winter destination for people in the northern hemisphere.
However, tourist authorities in the South African city have reported that the place is well on its way to overcoming seasonality and becoming a year-round holiday hotspot.
According to figures from Cape Town Tourism, more than half of the Mother City’s hotels recorded a year-on-year increase for occupancy rates during the latest April to June period.
“We put in a lot of effort and are happy that some of these things are coming into fruition. And we are glad that they worked out favourably,” said Grant Pascoe, mayoral committee member for tourism, events and marketing.
Tourists flocked to the city to take part in the Women’s Day celebrations and to see major international sports teams such as Manchester United.
