I Do Like To Be By The Seaside South Africa 2018

Wonderful to see African Penguins in Africa!

One of the many, many great things about a Birdwatching Trip to South Africa is the amazing variety of wildlife and scenery encountered. We started our tour in the desert, crossed two mountain ranges and found ourselves on the stunningly beautiful coast! All these habitats packed with birds and wildlife.

A stunning setting for our penguin watching - Betty's Bay.

Great excitment as we walked out onto the headland.

This young African Penguin looks very different to the adults.

Of course much more to see at the wonderful location - Cape Cormorant.

Much smaller Crowned Cormorants were resting on the rocks close to the path.

Hartlaub's Gulls with a Grey-headed Gull showed nicely.

These cute young rock hyrax were on the rocks next to the penguins.

Not far from the penguins we enjoyed another amazing wildlife spectacle.

Southern right whales just off the rocks mind blowing!

South Africa has so much wildlife the wonderful sights just kept coming on this amazing tour. So many wonderful memories that will live long in the memory and we can't wait to return. We would love you to join us on our Birdwatching Trips, please email us here...
