About SAMREC African Penguin Rehabilitation Center

For a truly phenomenal experience for any animal lover and an extraordinary educational trip that may change your perspective on things, be sure to visit the African penguin rehabilitation centre in the Cape Recife Nature Reserve in Port Elizabeth. Not only are the endangered African penguins rescued and rehabilitated here, but you will see a variety of marine birds and animals such as gannets and sea turtles at the centre too.

The viewing area will allow you to watch the rehabilitation process without the animals getting distressed. Animals and birds are rescued from a variety of horrific and stressful situations and are brought back to the centre for treatment. The Intensive care unit looks after the injured or sick and there is a cleaning station where they are washed and dried. They are then fed and allowed to erst and relax in a safe environment and enjoy the pool facilities. While here research is done and we can learn more about them. Once the staff have found out what they can and have cared and treated the patients, they are then released back into the wild.

If you are interested in helping and love animals then drop by. There is a coffee shop here too where you can relax while the kids enjoy watching the marine life splash in the pool.
