Visitors Info

Tourism is one of Cape Town's greatest assets as it generates income and creates jobs, business and other opportunities.

Through its Tourism Development Department, the City of Cape Town is committed to ensuring that tourism is led by local government, driven by the private sector, and firmly based in local communities and organisations.

The City has developed the Tourism Development Framework which aims to develop and maintain tourism attractions, facilities and infrastructure in a sustainable way, and build the capacity of local business to benefit from the opportunities offered through the tourism industry.
