Flying the flag 1 082m high for South Africa, Table Mountain was named Africa’s Leading Tourist Attraction at the Africa & Indian Ocean World Travel Awards in Mauritius on Saturday 1 June.
Voted by travel and tourism professionals and consumers worldwide, the World Travel Awards recognises excellence in customer service and experience across the travel, tourism and hospitality industries.
Coming out tops against Mount Kilimanjaro and the Ngorogoro Crater in Tanzania and the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, as well as South Africa’s own Robben Island and V&A Waterfront, Table Mountain’s victory is no small feat.

“The World Travel Awards are globally recognized as the ultimate independently assessed travel accolade, so being named Africa’s Leading Airport for the third consecutive year is both a testament to the ongoing hard work and commitment to excellence demonstrated by all staff at this airport. This award is also viewed as a challenge for us not to rest on our past achievements but to continue to work hard to remain an award-winning airport.”
