Ang gagawin mo

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 may also participate in real-time research by helping to collect data about any new 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.

100% of your fee for this transformative experience goes back to helping to save the penguins. Support ethical, responsible, sustainable tourism! <(")
Other things to note
If I am not available, your guide will be another penguin expert (Terry or Becca). Bring sunblock + a sunhat + sunglasses. Selfie-sticks are not permitted. The walk is generally doable in all weather

  • Naberipika ang pagkakakilanlan
I am a life-time marine conservationist, also a widely-published journalist, author, honorary ranger, shark-loving surfer and snake wrangler. I also host the award-nominated online experience 'The Art of Penguin Conservation' on Airbnb virtual. My career as a conservationist was inspired at the age of nine when I encountered one of the first pairs of African penguins to come ashore at Boulders Beach and wrote a story about them that got published, thus beginning my journey with penguins. 37 years later and my passion for saving penguins is none diminished.
The unfinished story of the endangered African penguin is currently being written and I invite you to be a part of it...

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.

This was an amazing educational experience to see the penguins and learn more about the conservation efforts going into them. Jon is obviously very knowledgeable and passionate about his work and it shows in the presentation. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit the African penguins!

The tour with Jon was absolutely amazing! He is not only very passionate and knowledgeable about the penguins, but also about nature conservation in general. He had a great deal of interesting stories to tell and patiently answered all of our questions, we truly learned a lot. Thank you very much Jon, and hope to see you soon :)

Great way to enjoy Father's Day... and what a total pleasure & delightful treat having Jon share his passion & love for penguins along with educating us to ensure future generations can appreciate the magical midday experience we had. NB NB With it a thought imagine if every business, restaurant, organisation including Airbnb who makes money from the Penguins contributed a small % towards the preservation, research and whatever else is needed to do just that for future generations : of feathered & human kind!
