Stoney Point Penguin Colony Tours

In the small town of Betty's Bay near Cape Town sits a colony of African penguins at a promontory called Stony Point. The colony is not as well-known as the one at Boulders Beach, but there are thousands of the little penguins in Betty's Bay – and, usually, fewer tourists. The colony is fenced in to protect it from predators, and there are raised walkways that allow visitors to watch the birds without disturbing them.

African penguins – also called Jackass penguins for their donkey-like braying – typically nest on islands, and the Stony Point colony is one of only three mainland colonies in South Africa. The penguins have also been known to make themselves at home in Betty's Bay residents' backyards.

Practical Info

Betty's Bay is just under 60 miles from Cape Town. Admission to the Stony Point penguin colony is SAR10 per person.
