Cape Town’s the place to be! Table Mountain has just been named as one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature. Our iconic landmark joins the Amazon (Brazil), Halong Bay (Vietnam), Iguazu Falls (Argentina), Jeju Island (South Korea), Komodo (Indonesia) and the Puerto Princesa Underground River (Philippines) as the seven official New Natural Wonders, announced earlier tonight in Zurich. The New7Wonders of Nature campaign has spanned four years, and started with over 440 locations from over 220 countries. The final seven spots were selected from a shortlist of 28 candidates, which included the Grand Canyon (USA), The Great Barrier Reef (Australia) and Mount Kilimanjaro (Tanzania).

What an amazing year for Cape Town! We now have a natural wonder right in the backyard of our World Design Capital. And this backdrop couldn’t get more beautiful.
