Table Mountain makes it into the Top 7 of the ‘New Wonders of the World’


In a last ditch effort has Cape Town’s campaign for votes yielded the desired result when the famous Table Mountain according to the provisional results now available occupied the 7th position in the global race for fame. Other attractions hoping to make it to the top 7, like Mt. Kilimanjaro or the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya, did not attract enough votes though, leaving the sole African honours to Cape Town Tourism, which pulled out all the stops to get into the mind of the voters.

The provisional rankings now available are as follows:

1 Amazon Rainforest Brazil

2 Halong Bay, Vietnam

3 Iguassu Falls, Brazil and Argentina

4 Jeju Island, South Korea

5 Komodo Island, Indonesia

6 Puerto Princesa Underground River, Philippines

7 Table Mountains, Cape Town, South Africa

No attractions from North America, Europe and the Australia / South Pacific made it into the listings this year, which were notably captured by mostly Far and South Eastern countries and South America, but for the effort of Africas pride, the Table Mountain.

Well done to the tourism fraternity in Cape Town and their countless friends around the world who made this possible.
