Table Mountain: Vote for SA’s natural wonder

2009-04-13 00:00

One of South Africa’s most iconic natural sites needs your vote in a global race to announce the New Seven Wonders of Nature.

In January this year, Table Mountain secured enough votes to make it through to the second round of the selection process.

Voters will have until July 7 to select their top 77 sites before a judging panel announces the 21 finalists. The final voting phase will start on July 21 and the official New Seven Wonders of Nature will be divulged in 2011.

Table Mountain Cableway’s marketing manager Collette van Aswegen says the mountain’s chances of making it through to the next round look promising. “Two weeks ago the mountain was ranked at number 29. This week it’s moved up four positions to number 25 and we’d like to encourage more people to vote,” she said.
