The Federated Hospitality Association of Southern Africa (Fedhasa) says the Mother City has not experienced 'too many' tourists.
This comes after an international report assessing the risks of overcrowding in cities including Cape Town and Durban.
Fedhasa's Cape chair Jeff Rosenberg says increased tourism over peak season is not unique to Cape Town.
He explains that the tourism industry only accounts for 3.4% of water usage in the city and adds that tourists have not had a negative impact on the local water crisis.
Even in the peak seasons, I don't think we've got too many tourists.— Jeff Rosenberg, Acting Chairperson of the Fedhasa Cape Board

Rosenberg discusses the tourism landscape in the Cape, the water crisis and the impact on residents.
