African Penguin

African Penguin - Perspective 2

African Penguin – Perspective 2, Boulder Beach Penguin Sanctuary, Table Mountain National Park, Simon’s Town, South Africa, August 2016

The African Penguin is a species of penguin found in the waters surrounding southern Africa.  It is also known as the jackass penguin because of its donkey like bray.  Its numbers are declining and it is considered endangered.

South Africa has created a reserve for these penguins on Boulder Beach near Simon’s Town.  There is a nice boardwalk down to the beach and an observation platform for viewing.  The penguins meander around and come very close to you.  They were a lot of fun to watch.

I hope you enjoy these images.
