Visiting Table Mountain is probably already on your to-do list during your Cape Town trip – and with good reason. It’s one of the city’s iconic symbols, a unique micro-climate with an incredible diversity of flora and fauna, and it offers some of the best views over Cape Town. As of December 2012, however, there’s another great reason to ride the cableway up to the top of Table Mountain – it’s been named one of the “New7Wonders” of the World.

28 sites around the world were announced as being finalists in the competition to be named one of the New7Wonders of Nature. Millions of people from all over the world voted on the sites they wanted to be included as one of the New7Wonders, and in late 2011 Table Mountain was announced as one of the provisional winners.
