Table Mountain is in the running to become one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature.
It has captured the imagination of travellers since sailors first rounded the Cape.
For Nelson Mandela, Table Mountain is the quintessential South African symbol – and icon for a nation trying to rebuild itself.
”Over the centuries the mountain has stood as a symbol of human capacity for hope and freedom, whether for the Khoikhoi tribes fighting colonial domination, for Indonesian and Malaysian slaves who for generations buried their leaders and holy men on its slopes, or for twentieth century political prisoners.
It is … a sacred and precious place … To us on Robben Island, Table Mountain was a beacon of hope.
It represented the mainland to which we knew we would one day return.”
On November 11th the New 7 Wonders will be announced. Help to ensure its place in the history books. Cast your vote for Table Mountain online.
