Simons Town Penguin Festival (Simons Town)
Please Note: This event has already taken place. Please check our Current and Upcoming Events List for current events.
Penguins are such delightful creatures and the Simons Town Penguin Festival is a celebration of this proud little animal.
On Saturday come down to the Seaforth Beach for the annual African penguin Awareness Day beach release, come and watch these little guys waddle back to their natural habitat.
In the parking areas in front of Boulders Beach Lodge and Restaurant on Bellevue Rd, you can take part in other activities on the day. This year’s festival features a cooking demonstration by a celebrity SASSI chef, a snake and reptile show, a raptor show, live spider exhibit, food stalls and loads of ‘edutainment’ for the kids.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to meet and take pictures with SANCCOB’s famous ambassador penguins, all with the aim to raise money for SANCCOB. If the weather is good why not jump into the water and swim around with the penguins?
Make sure you don't miss out on this fantastic event!
Times: 10h00 to 15h00
More Info: Telephone SANCCOB on +27 (0)21 557-6155
