The people of Cape Town have been urged to come together and vote for Cape Town to be named as one of the new Wonders of Nature.

People taking flights to Cape Town could decide to help out one of the iconic local landmarks and vote for it to be named as one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature.

Tourism Cape Town has called on all the people living in the city to vote for the mountain in order to ensure its place on the listing.

At present, it is rated outside of the top ten.

Bernard Weber, founder-president of the New Seven Wonders of Nature campaign, said residents needed to find inspiration in Nelson Mandela.

“Every South African and those worldwide who admire Mr Mandela owe it to him to vote for Table Mountain, his mountain of hope,” Mr Weber said.

He explained there are still five days of voting left to go, which could be enough time for the natural feature to make the list.

Travellers on flights to Cape Town may not be aware that the city has already received an honour recently, as it was named the World Design Capital for 2014.
