Visiting the African Penguins at Betty's Bay on our Garden Route Tours

The Western Cape is home to three colonies of African penguins. One of these colonies are found in the town of Betty's Bay on route to Hermanus as you round the Helderberg Mountains. A stop at the penguins can be made on a couple of tours, including Hermanus Whale Watching tours and Garden Route tours.

The penguins can be viewed up close as they go about their daily lives in their natural habitat. A couple of penguins arrived here a few decades ago and since then they have dramatically grown in numbers. Unfortunately they are still endangered and therefore the government has granted them special parks where their protection is taken care of.

These penguins can also be found along Cape Point at Boulder's Beach. If you have limited time in Cape Town or The Garden Route, one visit to a colony should suffice. Our advertised 6 Day Garden Route group tours stop in Betty's Bay on the first day of the tour, and our private tours offer the penguins as an optional stop if a stop in Hermanus is part of the itinerary.

Please feel free to let us know if you would like to include the penguins in any of our Garden Route tours.
