Last week was all about the endangered African penguin: The Penguin Promises Waddle for a Week saw seven people from various organisations (Two Oceans Aquarium, uShaka Sea World, National Zoological Gardens Pretoria, SANCCOB and Gold Reef City) walk from Gansbaai to Simon’s Town to raise awareness about the plight of the African penguin. Read all about it in the series of blogs we published last week!

We’ve arrived! The Penguin Promises Waddle for a Week has come to an end. Everyone made it in one piece and the Waddlers’ spirits remain high. This morning, we were joined by about 40 other waddlers from all walks of life. Together, they set off from Muizenberg and unfortunately, only a couple of kilometres further, the rain came down and everyone got drenched.

This morning’s drive from Betty’s Bay to Gordon’s Bay, via Clarence Drive, must be one of the most beautiful drives in South Africa. Everyone sat in awe of the amazing scenery, with the sheer cliffs dropping off to the sea on the one side and the mountain rising solidly and steadfast on the other. Soon these waters will play host to the annual migration of the southern right whales and tourists, local and foreign, will flock to see these giants of the oceans frolic in their watery home.
