Table Mountain is in the running to become one of the New7Wonders of Nature, but this South African attraction is falling behind!
The New7Wonders will be announced on November 11, 2011 and we need your help to ensure our place in the history books.
Vote for Table Mountain online or via SMS as often as possible.
So … what are we up against?
True, Table Mountain is a stunner absolutely deserving of a place as one of the New7Wonders of Nature. But our mountain is going to have to share the limelight with six other natural wonders, which are, in all likelihood, just as lovely.
Twenty-seven natural wonders are competing with Table Mountain for a spot in the top seven, and when you vote for our mountain online, you’ll be asked to tick boxes for all seven of your favourites.
Why vote for our mountain?
Table Mountain is a South African icon and the only natural site on the planet to have a constellation of stars named after it – Mensa, meaning “the table.” The flat-topped mountain has withstood six million years of erosion and hosts the richest, yet smallest floral kingdom on earth with over 1,470 floral species. Table Mountain boasts numerous rare and endangered species. It is the most recognized site in Cape Town, the gateway to Africa, owing to its unique flat-topped peaks which reach 1,086 m above sea level.
