The Table Mountain Cableway has been nominated for an international travel award and we can all help them win it by casting our votes.


Cape Town, South Africa (18 September 2020) – The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company (TMACC) has been nominated in the “leading tourist attraction category” of the 2020 World Travel Awards. Public voting closes on 24 September 2020.

Every year, the World Travel Awards celebrates the very best across the tourism and hospitality industries. The Awards serves to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors. In 2019, TMACC took the top spot as Leading Tourist Attraction in Africa and the Indian Ocean.

Initially postponed earlier this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 Awards will now take place in Antalya, Turkey, in late October.

“We are so excited that TMACC has been nominated for this prestigious award. This is a huge honor for us”, says Wahida Parker, Managing Director at TMACC.

“We are constantly working to provide our visitors with an experience of a lifetime, from the moment they purchase their tickets to the moment they are walking back to the cars or tour buses.”

TMACC is currently competing with giants in the attractions industry across the continent, which include; Mountain Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt and two of the fellow Cape Town Big Six attractions – Robben Island and the V&A Waterfront.

Parker continued saying that the Cableway is focused towards building a reputation that is centred on best practice – ultimately ensuring that visitors enjoy world class experiences.

“As a responsible operator, it is important that we take a careful approach to operations, specifically in the social and physical environments that are the backbone of our establishment.”

Locals, travellers and tourism professionals vote for the awards and the focus is on excellence in customer service and overall experience.

“The Mountain belongs to all of us and I therefore would like to strongly urge all South Africans to go and vote for our New7Wonder of Nature,” adds Parker.

Voting closes on September 24, 2020. To vote, visit
