Such a heartwarming close encounter(on a raised walkway) to view our African Penguins in their natural environment. Pathways are save, well kept. Short walk from the parking lot. Good value for your money. RSA resident remember your RSA ID, to make use of the citizens discount! Staff not that friendly.

Family friendly outing to experience the African penguins in their natural habitat. Allowing for close encounters from the elevated walkway. Short walk from the parking lot, for young and old. Good value for your money trip. Unfortunately we were assisted by rude and poorly trained National Park employees, unlike any other National Parks experience to date! PS - remember your RSA ID, to qualify for the Citizen discount!

It was good to see that our wildlife are being protected. Facilities are well maintained and it is a very short walk to see a huge colony of penguins.

Come here to see the penguins. You have the option to enter the National Park and go down to the beach and get close to the penguins (there is a small entry fee) or you can have a look at the penguins from the border (where they are just as visible). If you are going to enter, you may as well bring your swim stuff and spend a good few hours here.

Boulder Beach is a definite must see when in Cape Town. The penguins are absolutely adorable. Boulder Beach viewing area is great and it's amazing to be able to be so close to the adorable penguins. If you have kids this is the perfect activity for them, just make sure they don't try touch a penguin because they do bite.
