Cape Town has once again been nominated across different categories for the prestigious World Travel Awards Africa Region 2023 – highly regarded as the gold standard award within the travel and tourism industry.

Bringing global attention to local destinations, attractions and operators, these awards will bring more and more tourists to our shore each year and ultimately enable our tourism industry to continue breathing life into our regional economy.
