THE AFRICAN PENGUINS


The Penguins at Cape Town's Boulders Bay Beach used to be called

Jackass penguins because of their distinctive mating call that sounds like

a braying donkey. Because South American penguins make the same mating

noise, Our Jackass Penguins name changed to African Penguins or Black

Footed Penguins. 


They are very fast swimmers at up too 24kmph and look like they are

flying under water. They have excellent camouflage against predators

with Black backs making them hard to spot from above and 

White belies making it hard to be spotted from below. 


Extra option add on: Swimming with Penguins in the Wild: 

for R400 Per Person more You will have the Opportunity to do a guided

Swim with the Penguins (Weather Dependent). 


This magical opportunity to be swimming with penguins is offered from a

small private beach named Foxy Beach and is a great adventure few tourist

ever get to experience. 


The water is a bit refreshing but warmer on this False Bay Coast side facing

east unlike other colder swimming beaches on the west. 


Our guided Penguin Snorkel would include the use of wet-suites 

and snorkel gear.
