South Africa Trip – Part 6 – Boulders Beach – Cape Town

Another must see when you go to Cape Town – The penguins at Boulders Beach!

There is a small entrance fee onto the beach to see the penguins, but it’s definitely worth it! (Also, you aren’t allowed on the sand with the penguins. You will be on a pedestrian deck and will be able to take photos. But if you want to get really close to the penguins, you find a couple of them off the beach and on pathways)

Can you see them?

They were definitely fun to watch.


Did you know that penguins molt their feathers?

Can you spot the ones that are molting their feathers below? cape-town-tour-1156PINIMAGE

Here’s a close up of a penguin. cape-town-tour-1183PINIMAGEAnd a close up of one molting.

I wish I had brought a better telephoto lens to capture more individual penguins, because even though they look somewhat the same, the don’t!

Next penguin viewing goal- Emperor Penguins in Antarctica. #Bucketlist
