Cape TownCape Town and the Western Cape have dominated in the World Travel Awards nominations for Africa, with dozens of tourism sites and facilities making the 2018 shortlist.



Cape Town International Airport is once again nominated for the top airport in Africa award, while the Cape Town Cruise Terminal features in the leading cruise port category.



The Cape Town International Convention Centre is also in the running for the leading meetings and conferences venue in Africa.



Cape Town is shortlisted in the leading city category, as well as in the leading festival and events destination, and the meetings and conferences destination.



Table Mountain and the V&A Waterfront are both in the running for the leading tourist attraction in Africa, in a category that also includes Mount Kilimanjaro and the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya.




There are several hotels and accommodation establishments across the Cape Town CBD, in the wine lands and on the Garden Route are also shortlisted in the many accommodation categories.



Tourism in the Western Cape has come under real pressure in the past year as a result of the drought, but the industry has worked phenomenally hard to save water and save important jobs. The fact that the Western Cape features in so many of the categories is testament to the hard work of the people in the industry and the excellent experiences and value that we offer to travellers.




The World Tourism Awards are based on a public vote. The members of the public, as well as representatives in the tourism industry are able to cast votes for the African categories until August 19.




The tourism industry contributes so much in terms of the economy and the creation of jobs, but it also helps create experiences and memories.
