There are Penguins in Africa
No, I’m not putting you on. There are indeed Penguins in Africa. On the southernmost tip of the South African Cape, at the end of the railway line (Simons Town) is a place called Boulders Beach. The African Penguin was introduced to the area in the 1980’s, with two breeding pairs to start the protected colony. Now there are more than 3,000 animals residing in the area, making it a great (and sometimes a bit smelly) tourist attraction!
Tip: There’s a main area you pay to enter where you’ll see the bulk of the Penguins and their nesting habitats. But if you head down the boardwalk path to the right away from the main entrance you’ll reach a more remote (and beautiful!) beach where, if you’re lucky, you might just witness an up-close walk-by.
