  • Very nice place and the penguins were so cute! Was great seeing them up close. Wish they had any kind of activity or photo moment, just something memorable to do or take away from the experience.
  • Situation in a sleepy coastal village of Betty's Bay, cute little black & white African🐧 everywhere. Nice restaurant called 'The Edge' on site, with very neat toilet facilities. Worth a visit.
