Catch me if you can!

There are two colonies of African Penguins within an hour's or so drive from Cape Town. One is at Boulders, on the Cape Peninsula. The other is at Stony Point, just west of Betty's Bay. Of the two spots, I like Stony Point the best. It's not quite as touristy, and the diversity of birds here is much higher.

Along with African penguins, one is likely to see two or three species of cormorants, African oystercatches, a variety of plovers, gulls, egrets, ibis, geese, and other birds who live off the bounty of the sea.

The antics of African penguins are always fun to watch.
