If you haven’t heard, Table Mountain is in the running to become one of the new 7 natural wonders of the world.
Table Mountain is the pride and joy of Cape Town, South Africa and has long been a major attraction for international and domestic tourists. It rises above the Mother City skyline and casts a unique disposition over this beautiful African city in the South-West corner of Africa. This iconic natural beauty of the Cape Town skyline is one of only two African natural phenomenon’s to have made the prestigious New7Wonders of Nature list along with Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. However, competition is stiff and Table Mountain needs your help to remain in the running.

Update – 16 November 2011
On Friday 11th November 2011 Cape Town’s Table Mountain was announced as one of the world’s New 7 Wonders of Nature. After a 3 year race with 28 other finalists, our Table Mountain has come through for us.
Followers of the New 7 Wonders initiative should note that the verdict is not set in stone just yet. A message on the official website states “The final 7 are the provisional New7Wonders of Nature based on the first count of vote results on 11/11/11.
It’s possible that there will be changes between the above provisional winners and the eventual finally confirmed winners. The voting calculation is now being checked, validated and independently verified, and the confirmed winners will be announced starting early 2012 during the Official Inauguration ceremonies.”
With the recent World Design Capital 2014 win, it looks like Cape Town is on a roll to become South Africa’s flagship city.
