26 March 2020: In light of President Cyril Ramaphosa‘s announcement of new measures to stem the spread of COVID-19, the Cape Town Big 6 will close all relevant attractions from 26 March to 16 April 2020 in order to contribute to the national effort to stem this health crisis. 

Over the past few weeks, the Cape Town Big 6 have taken a number of independent initiatives to ensure the safety of its staff and visitors. Last week, its members took further steps to comply with the National State of Disaster regulations declared by the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Dr Nkosazana Diamini Zuma, and have every intention to comply with new regulations gazetted this week.

As South Africa faces this unprecedented and unpredictable situation, the Cape Town Big 6 will continue to monitor it and work together to maintain confidence in SA’s tourism industry beyond it.
