"I GO for Penguins!" Penguins - Boulders Beach Tip by Radiomom

Penguins - Boulders Beach, Cape Town: 74 reviews and 166 photos

  Penguins are so sensitive...

(One of my favorite Lyle Lovett songs, BTW)
We visited TWO penguin colonies -- one at Betty's Bay, the other at Boulders. For photos, Boulders is the best, as there are more opportunities for contrast -- too many rocks at Betty's make it hard for your photos to turn out (although both were gorgeous places).
