Wat je gaat doen

Waddle into the fascinating world of our most endangered bird, off the beaten track and away from the tourist traps. Over the space of an easy, 2 hour-walk across beach, tarred road and wooded boardwalk, we will go "behind the scenes" and into secret spaces only the penguins know as we discover these amazing birds at all different stages of their lifecycle. From counting newly-laid eggs (January - March) to encountering sprightly new-born chicks (March to July) to seeing the adults in their annual moult (September to November), or just to enjoy the sight of penguins being penguins, you will learn how to tell a "she" from a "he", how to tell their age and also participate in real-time research by helping to collect data about the birds we encounter. We will meet a supporting cast of coastal creatures; myriad other bird species, insects, plants, reptiles and mammals. Our journey ends back at our conservation NGO headquarters for a refreshing juice, energy-giving snack and a chat about it all.
100% of your fee for this transformative experience goes back to helping to save the penguins. Support ethical, responsible, sustainable tourism! <(")

I am a life-time penguin conservationist, also a widely-published journalist, author, honorary ranger, shark-loving surfer and part-time snake wrangler with a story or two to tell. My career as a conservationist was inspired at the age of nine when I encountered one of the first pairs of African penguins to ever nest on Boulders Beach and wrote a story about them that got published, thus beginning my journey with penguins that has Iasted 37 years.
If I am unavailable, my colleague and co-director Terry Corr will guide you. Terry is also a life-time conservationist and is the Head of Education at our NGO.
The unfinished story of the endangered African penguin is currently being written and we invite you to be a part of it...

Waar je naartoe gaat

Our Walk begins on historic Seaforth Beach. We will visit secret coves, pathways and annual nest sites used by penguins on our way through the national park for a view of how tourism impacts the birds. The walk culminates on a secluded walkway for the finale of the African Penguin story before heading back to our Centre for refreshments.
Note: Some variation of route may occur due to time of the year, weather and the location of penguins.

This experience is fantastic and we are so happy that we have done this instead of just visiting boulders beach. Jon shared so much information about these cute birds with us and we learned a lot about their lifes and behaviour. There were so many hidden places you would not even recognize without Jons expetience and knowledge! I would highly recommend the tour to everybody who is interested in finding out more about the penguins and for everybody who would like to help protecting them.

This tour gives you a deep insight into these endangered penguins....I learnt about how impactful any human interaction and if I hadn’t had the ‘wisdom of Jon’ I may have also been one of the selfie taking majority getting in the way of the penguins day. Jon was an amazing and knowledgable host and the beautiful weather also helped...we were late and Jon was fine with that....whet a guy!

Es war ein absolut tolles Erlebnis! Jon ist mit Leidenschaft bei der Sache und setzt sich mit viel Herz für den Schutz von Pinguinen und anderen Arten ein. Wir haben während der Tour sehr viel über Pinguine gelernt, aber auch über andere Tiere und das Zusammenspiel dieser Arten. Jon ist super freundlich und offen, wir haben uns sehr gut verstanden. Er geht zudem auf alle Fragen detailliert ein, so kann man wirklich etwas lernen. Ich hätte nicht gedacht so vielr interessante Dinge zu erfahren. Absolut empfehlenswert, zumal es eine non profit Organisation ist.

It was wonderful to learn more about the passionate conservation efforts of this group. Learning more about how they are raising awareness and helping to protect the natural habitat of the penguins was fabulous.

The walk and conversation with Jon was fascinating. He is extremely knowledgeable not only about the penguins but about wildlife conservation in the area. Our conversation and walk was very personable and an incredible learning experience. Jon was a gracious and warm host, and I could have walked even more because chatting and talking with Jon was one of the most interesting things I did while in South Africa. This experience went beyond just seeing the penguins - it went in-depth and immersed you in a "penguin experience." Contact Jon and join him for this walk and conversation. You will not be disappointed and will be able spend some time with a great guy! Thanks, Jon! This was really an unforgettable experience.
