Explore Western Cape and go to Boulders Beach. It remains the only place in the world where one can get up close to African Penguins. Penguin viewing is made easier by boardwalks that lead visitors across the beaches as well as to an information centre, which is managed by SANParks. In January the juvenile penguins are moulting on the beach and adults are feeding-up for the breeding season, which lasts from February to August. Penguins feed at sea for much of September and October so the number of birds on the beach is lower. Just around the area is famous Simon's Town which is home to the South African Navy and the village houses a few navy museums. There are also plenty of superb beaches close by. WHERE TO STAY The Cape Town area, including nearby Simon's Town and Fishhoek, has a wide variety of accommodation available from budget to luxury options.
