When on South African soil you touch down,
Be sure to include enough time in Cape Town.
Such incredible beauty and so much to do,
Here are a few pointers for you.
A good walk with a guide or by the world-class cableway,
Visiting Table Mountain is a must during your stay.
There is no doubt you will be impressed with the view,
Remember to capture the memories with a photo or two!
The V&A Waterfront should be high on your list,
Remember to take along a few “bucks” in your fist.
There are stores and restaurants galore,
This atmosphere will have you wanting to experience more!
If flora is of any interest to you,
Getting to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is another “must-do”.
A variety of trees and plants some young and some old,
Remember to look out for the spectacular Mandela’s Gold!
On its own, paired with cheese or chocolate so divine,
Not far from the city enjoy the Western Cape wine.
Include a picnic or a top-class “wine & dine”,
Whatever your preference you are assured to have a great time!
Head to the Cape of Good Hope via Chapman’s Peak,
The scenery on this drive will give you much of which to speak.
At Africa’s, South Western most tip pose for a photo or two,
Ride the funicular or walk to the lighthouse to enjoy the False Bay view!
In and around the Mother City is endless more to see and do,
Museums, parks, penguins, sharks, whales and the wonderful heritage too.
The Bo-Kaap atmosphere and the colourful display,
These amongst the many more things to enjoy during your stay!
Cape Town, in essence, is where the South African history began,
Let’s always remember the indigenous Khoi Khoi and the San.
You will find the Cape Town people so friendly, engaging and funny,
But then, it may be regarded as a patch of “milk and honey”!
