Mixed reports for Easter buisness in Cape Town
Cape Town’s tourism establishments and attractions have reported varying results for the Easter Weekend and subsequent public holiday bonanza.
Easter is traditionally a busy time for Cape Town, especially in terms of domestic and local tourism. This year saw the largest number of entries in the history of the Two Oceans Marathon, with a record field of close to 23 000 runners participating. Many of the marathon runners extended their stay in Cape Town by a number of days, making full use of the unusual culmination of public holidays.
“The Two Oceans Marathon did contribute to a significant influx of visitors to the Mother City over the Easter weekend, but judging from feedback from the industry, we have not experienced the expected boom in inbound or domestic tourism over the last ten days,” says Cape Town Tourism CEO, Mariette du Toit-Helmbold.
