Hotels, Restaurants & Tourism other Sector

The Hotel, Restaurants and Tourism Sectors make a significant contribution to the country’s GDP and employ a significant proportion of the active workforce in the formal and informal market. The sectors were among the hardest hit by the impact of Covid-19.

According to Statistics South Africa the total number of foreign travellers who visited South Africa from Africa, overseas and unspecified countries, arriving through all ports of entry during 2021 was 3 150 007.

The 2021 figure represents a decrease of 31,3% as compared with the 2020 figure of 4 586 387.
The hotel sector is one of the most important components of the wider service industry.

 It not only focuses on overnight accommodation for foreign and local tourists but also plays a major role in banqueting and event hosting. The restaurant industry is one of the largest components of the hospitality industry and is known for providing world-class food services. Several of Cape Town’s top restaurants are ranked among the best in the world and achieve international acclaim.  

As the Cape Chamber, we look forward to increasing connectivity and collaboration with the sector.

We welcome you to engage with us to improve our Hotels, Restaurants and Tourism sector.
