Eating at Moyo in South Africa
There’s nothing wrong with being a tourist and doing the touristy attractions. My primary purpose in traveling is to have fun, and there are some awesome, fun things around the world that are on the beaten path. Today’s adventure takes you to one such place near Cape Town, South Africa: Moyo.
Moyo is a restaurant chain located throughout South Africa. It combines traditional, African cuisine with African entertainment. After wine tasting at Spier, we decided to dine at Moyo’s location in Stellenbosch. Take a look in this YouTube video.
The Lion Sleeps Tonight
While we were dining in our treetop, we overheard the pair of musicians hoping table to table. They one and only song they kept playing was, “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”. Naturally, when they came to our table and asked for requests, we could only think of one song…
But this time, we took their instruments, headpieces and sang and danced like no one was watching (which I’ve also done in a luxury hotel). I firmly believe we had the most fun. I firmly believe our entertainers enjoyed our table the best.
It’s Okay to Be a Tourist
Lots of travelers trumpet that the best, and only way to see a country is to travel off the beaten path. But I, on the other hand, relish the moments when you can don face paint and sing and dance your way to African Rhythms after a few glasses of wine. Traveling is about creating memories and Moyo offered the perfect opportunity.
