One of the things I remember most about Cape Town is the stunning landscape. An overabundunce of natural beauty. Among the places I explored combined with my passion for landscape & wildlife is the Boulder’s & Foxy Beach. Never in my life, and certainly outside Antarctica, did I imagine that I could get so close to these adorable creatures. While at the train on the way to Simon’s Town, which is an hour away from the city, I could not help but wonder how much I would see. The area where I saw the penguins for the first time consist of two interconnected beaches. One is the Boulder’s Beach, where it is supposedly possible to swim with them. Something I coudn’t do at that time because the water was so cold.
The other is the Foxy Beach where I saw the entire colony from a constructed boardwalk. The place required an entrance fee though. There were hundreds of them. All fury and extremely cute. They seemingly enjoy posing for the cameras. And I could see them everywhere. Either behind bushes & rocks or basking in the sun beside the walkways.
Here are some photos taken at the beach as well as Simon’s Town.
