    Penquins at Boulders

    No Cape Town page would be complete if you did not add the penquins at Boulders to your tips. They are lovely little animals that can be quite mischievious.

    See Penguins

    by lilysuzlini Updated Nov 19, 2007

    Drive to Boulders beach at the Simon's Town and I can assure you that your kids will be thrilled with the penguins. Have to take a long walk to the beach where they are. Worth going for.

    Cute Lovable African Penguins

    The African Penguins were very cute but loud. Incredible that they can live there with the human inhabitants.

    Bounty beach!

    by NikkiGerbrands Written Dec 12, 2006

    The beach was beautiful and the penquins were funny. It's just a bit dissapointing that you cant't get of the path and walk on the beach itself. Now it's a little bit like walking in a zoo...

    Is the home of the Jackass penguins colony, here you´ll see a lot of these birds, roaming free between the round rocks in their private Foxy Beach.

    Penguins on Boulders Beach

    by marjanh Updated Feb 9, 2005

    In Boulders Beach- near Simon's Town - you can see a large number of penguins. You can get realy close to them, but you'll have to stay on the wooden walkways.

    Go to see the penguins at boulder's beach at low tide! Because then you can go down to the beach and walk with the penguins! You'll meet one at every corner!

    Just take a seat someplace and observe these little creatures - they are fascinating and very curious, but won't come too close to you! Such an amazing experience!!

    These little fellas just arrived here a few years back, decided they liked the place and told the humans that the're taking over!

    The birds on Cape Town's beaches are awesome!

    This was the one must see for me on my trip to South Africa. I love penguins. I want a penguin as a pet. I was tempted to bring one of these cute little critters home with me.

    It is great to observe these penguins, like this scene where the mother penguin takes care for her baby penguin.
