Jackass penguins

The African penguin is a black-footed species of penguin confined to southern African waters. It is also widely known as the "jackass" penguin for its donkey-like braying sound used to communicate.

Cape fur seals

The island is so named because of the great number of Cape fur seals that occupy it. At certain times of the year the Great White Sharks create a circle around it known as 'Ring of Death'. Any seal that swims too far is attacked by the sharks.

Ostriches at Oudtshoorn

Oudtshoorn has the largest population of ostriches in the world and is also called as 'The Ostrich Capital of the World'. It’s known for its ostrich farms and rests along Route 62, the longest wine route in the world.
