Table Mountain wins Africa’s leading Tourist Attraction Award yet again
South Africa’s popular destination, Table Mountain has been chosen as Africa’s leading tourist attraction at the World Travel Awards 2020. Table Mountain faced stiff competition from Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, Cape Town Big Six attractions – Robben Island, and the V&A Waterfront. Table Mountain has earlier won the award in 2019 and 2013. Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company (TMACC) in the background has been encouraging the South Africans to cast their votes.
With a visitor list touching over 29 million over the decades, the win has cemented the destination’s position as one of the top attractions on the African continent.
The Managing Director of TMACC, Wahida Parker, said they were excited about this accomplishment. “At this point where tourism and travel have suffered greatly as a result of Covid-19, we are extremely pleased to bring this accolade home to South Africa and Cape Town in particular. We are excited about the recognition, honor, and responsibility that this places on us, and inspired at the prospect that we could claim the distinction of leading attraction of the world. We would like to thank everyone who voted for Table Mountain and made this dream a reality,” she added.
Director of New7Wonders Foundation, Jean-Paul da la Fuente, said that it was no surprise that Table Mountain has won the Prestigious award yet again.
“It is one of the leading attractions in the whole world. And let us not forget that Table Mountain is also a symbol of continental unity, reaching up to the only surviving Ancient 7 Wonder, the Pyramids of Giza,” he said.
Presently, Table Mountain is still up in the race for the award of the world’s leading tourist attraction. The Winners of the World Awards is expected to be announced by the end of November 2020.
