Mont Rochelle Contributes to Water Saving Efforts

Although Mont Rochelle hotel and vineyard runs solely on borehole water and does not rely on Cape Town, South Africa’s drought-diminished municipal water grid, the venue contributed to efforts to conserve water.

Water saving initiative included encouraging guests at the 26-room address to take showers instead of baths, switching off garden irrigation systems and installing aerators on taps.

The arrival of the winter rains has seen a steady increase in dam water levels. This, coupled with local residents and businesses adapting to a water-sensible lifestyle, has given tourism leaders confidence that the region is heading towards recovery.

Mont Rochelle noted the region had been praised for its rapid and rational response to the drought and suggested businesses had set an example of water-wise tourism to the world.
