See one of the New7Wonders of Nature on South Africa overland tours
Brits booking trips to South Africa for an adventure holiday might be keen to check out Table Mountain, which overlooks Cape Town.
The site was recently named one of the New7Wonders of Nature after being chosen from more than 440 candidates.
It joins illustrious sites such as the Iguazu Falls, Jeju Island, the Amazon, Halong Bay, Komodo and the Purerto Princesa Underground River on the list.
Table Mountain has long been a favourite among adventure tours customers and backpackers looking for stunning views over the city and the surrounding area.
According to South Africa Tourism, accounting firm Grant Thornton has worked out that being named as one of the New7Wonders of Nature could help Table Mountain create 11,000 new jobs over the next five years and potentially bring in R1.4 billion (£107 million) for the local economy.
Those on South Africa adventure trips and planning to visit the site will learn that it is thought to be approximately 360 million years old - one of the oldest surviving mountains on earth.
Its accessibility makes it a great tourism attraction for anyone visiting Cape Town as it is just a 20-minute drive from the city's international airport.
"I would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for Table Mountain and the celebrity ambassadors - from Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Springbok Rugby team to all the journalists, musicians, comedians, actors, politicians and sports stars who campaigned on our behalf," explained Table Mountain Cableway chief executive officer Sabine Lehmann.
Cape Town Tourism chief executive Mariette Du Toit-Helmbond added that this is great news, especially after the city won the right to cal itself the World Design Capital 2014.
The city is a great place to start or finish an overland trip, with travellers able to spend approximately four months visiting a variety of exciting places between Cairo and Cape Town, including, Sudan, Nairobi and Ethiopia.
