We have a guesthouse here in Cape Town. Find us at Cape Coast Views. We are always amazed that visitors buy bottled water. Tap water in most of South Africa is perfectly safe to drink.
We have The Blue Drop Report which grades tap water in our regions. Jozi tops the list with the best water in South Africa and Cape Town comes in second.
That is not to say all South Africans have access to tap water.
In rural areas people walk miles to collect water in plastic drums. I am always amazed at how the woman carry heavy barrels of water - on their heads! Little girls have little barrels and the older woman carry the heavier containers. I can't even balance a book on my head.
