There's something incredibly endearing about these creatures. Maybe it's their unrefined singing voices that resemble those of braying jackasses (hence the name) or the fact that their useless wings have left them landbound after millions of years of evolution. Whatever the reason, a meander along the winding boardwalk running through the African penguin colony's breeding ground is a joy. Watch as they waddle about, wade in the choppy water and play peekaboo from their twiggy burrows. For a mere R5 extra, you can spy on slippery sea life or beach babes through the binoculars dotting the walkway.
