This is a significant decline from the year-on-year growth of 3.6% from 2012 to 2013.

CapeTalk presenter Kieno Kammies spoke with Enver Duminy, CEO of Cape Town Tourism, about the effect of the figures on our local industry.
According to Duminy, there is a discrepancy between national tourism figures and international travel to Cape Town.
