An exceptional drought is currently affecting the Cape region and has led to unprecedented water shortages. Local authorities have imposed strict water restrictions (maximum 50 litres per person and per day from 1 February). Both residents and visitors are asked to respect these restrictions and to limit water consumption as much as possible.
If you're visiting the Cape, it is recommended that you enquire at your accommodation about the measures that have been taken, since unlimited access to tap water will not be possible.
