Table Mountain a New7Wonder of Nature

Cape Town - Table Mountain has been confirmed as one of the New7Wonders of Nature after the first count of the global vote was announced on Friday.

Amazon, Halong Bay, Iguazu Falls, Jeju Island, Komodo, and Puerto Princesa Underground River are the other six Wonders of Nature.

The results announced are provisional and based on the first count of votes completed since voting ended at 11:11 GMT.

The results will now be checked, validated and independently verified, a statement from New7Wonders says.

Once the voting validation process is completed, in early 2012, New7Wonders will then work with the confirmed winners to organise the Official Inauguration events, says the statement.
