The announcement ends three years of campaigning for votes in the global poll, and Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille said it was a “great accolade”.

"Table Mountain is a marvel of history, geology and biodiversity — it even has a stellar constellation named after it," she said.

"The wonder becomes part of school curricula, it becomes a 'must see' and a 'bucket list' item for travellers and explorers."
