Cape Town Wildlife

As well as its splendid breathtaking scenery, friendly locals and delicious cuisine, I was intrigued by how much Cape Town has to offer of wildlife. Our first encounter was with the seals at the Seal Island, which we approached by a river cruise. Unfortunately, the weather was very misty; hence I rendered the seals photos to black and white for better effect.Following the Seal Island, we went to Boulders Beach to view the African penguins, which are also known as “jackass” penguins for their donkey like bray. They have short body, pink glands above the eye to regulate their body temperature and short feathers, which make them distinctive to other penguin species. Overall, I tried to capture different penguins behavior and demonstrate them in this post. I hope you will enjoy! :)
