It’s so cute, I just couldn’t resist! Loads of pretty faces to look at while you are walking next to the ocean, enjoying a nice warm breeze in the sunshine.
Just outside Cape Town there’s a penguin colony called Stony Point Penguin Colony. This is one of the three land-based colonies in South Africa.
One of the other ones is ‘Boulders Beach’ in Simons town, where you can view penguins on the beach. This place is beautiful as well, but most of the time very busy and full of tourists. If you want a place that’s a bit more quiet, the Stony Point Penguin Colony in Betty’s Bay is the place to go!
Another advantage of viewing penguins in Betty’s Bay is the views on the way there! You can drive right next to the ocean, with amazing views.
Back to the penguins, they are just adorable! There’s a sign on the road with a penguin on it, which takes you to the viewing point. There’s a great boardwalk you walk over and the fluffy animals are just everywhere around you.
If you go in Springtime, you can even spot extra fluffy penguins: babies! This one is even posing for the picture!
