The iconic Table Mountain in South Africa has been named Africa's leading tourist attraction by the World Travel Awards.

It was named ahead of other top continent destinations such as Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt and two of Cape Town’s major attractions: Robben Island and the V&A Waterfront.

"This award could not have been announced at a better time, Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company (TMACC) managing director Wahida Parker was quoted as saying by News24.

“As South Africa is finally removed from the UK's red list, we can definitely expect to see more tourists from all over [the] world coming to experience Africa's leading tourist attraction." 

The TMACC was also nominated as the world's leading cable car.

"We are one of only three rotating cable cars and our impeccable safety track record should stand us in good stead to bring it home for the industry," Parker said.

Table Mountain is also vying for the World's Leading Tourist Attraction title and winners are expected to be announced at the WTA 2021 Grand Final Gala Ceremony next month.
