Information about the drought in Cape Town

At Airbnb, we believe in travel that’s both local and sustainable, which is why we are committed to helping the city of Cape Town deal with one of the worst droughts the country has ever experienced. We have been closely monitoring the crisis and we want our community to know how they can play their part in saving water during the drought. There’s important information being published from the City of Cape Town, which you can read here.

Remember to follow the direction of local officials. They are also the best source of information relating to this drought. Information on how to conserve water can be found be found at the city of Cape Town’s website and also the Western Cape Government website. If you are a guest, information on how to how to save water can be found here and we ask that you make every effort to use water sparingly.

Earlier this year, we organised a host meet up with partners in the city to inform our community of how to preserve water and educate their guests on doing the same.
