It's just that iconic.

While it might not have yet received the international recognition it deserves by being named an official natural wonder of the world, it has recently been added to a different 'Wonders of the World' list.

In 2007, the list of the Seven Wonders of the World was updated when over 100-million votes were cast across the globe to determine which wonders truly deserve to be listed.

To determine the most 'wondered' about attractions the company looked at the amount of page views from over 4,300 places on the globe and was able to see which pages were visited the most.

The Kruger National Park did not manage to make the top ten, but it was by far the most searched attraction in SA.

Here are the top 7 'Wonders of the World':

  1. The Taj Mahal (India) – 28,601,383 page views
  2. The Burj Khalifa (United Arab Emirates) – 23,423,701 page views
