SATSA received feedback from a concerned and involved member in the Western Cape. Given the acute water shortage the region is facing, the member was taken aback by the mixed messages the hotel and guesthouse sector is sending international tourists on the issue.
The Vineyard Hotel has taken plugs out of baths and provided a small timer to assist guests in shortening showers. Other establishments are making an effort to give clear messaging to guests. However, it would appear that some are not doing much in communicating the crises to international travellers who would be oblivious to the regions plight. SATSA would like to call on our members to take action – let’s all sign off the same hymn book here!
