Table Mountain Makes the List!

(Department of the Premier, Western Cape Government)
Summary

Table Mountain is one of seven finalists who made the list of the New7Wonders of Nature competition and highlight Cape Town's rich natural and cultural wealth.

Table Mountain has made it onto the final list of the New7Wonders of Nature competition, along with the Amazon, Halong Bay, Iguazu Falls, Jeju Island, Komodo and Puerto Princesa Underground River. These provisional results were released after the first count of votes was conducted on 11 November. These results are being recounted and verified independently before the official inauguration ceremonies in early 2012.

This is the second of two recent big achievements for Cape Town, as earlier this month the city was named World Design Capital 2014. These achievements highlight Cape Town's rich natural and cultural wealth.

Both achievements are sure to propel the city towards further international prominence and towards becoming a top travel destination.

Table Mountain was competing against 27 other natural wonders of the world to make it onto the final list.
