Johannesburg - Table Mountain's cableway had a
record-breaking holiday season and tourism in Cape Town is reaping the
benefits, according to a report on Thursday.
The Times reported that the cableway's ticket sales were 19
000 more than expected at 119 000 and preliminary figures indicate that the
city had an increase in domestic tourism arrivals in December.
Cape Town Tourism spokesperson told the newspaper that she
believed that the iconic landmark's status as one of the New Seven Wonders of
Nature contributed to the increase in ticket sales.
"We will only be able to confirm final numbers once we
receive Airports Company of SA arrival figures and complete our accommodation
and attraction survey later this month," she told the newspaper.
Table Mountain was officially inaugurated as one of the New
Seven Wonders of Nature in December.
