South Africa: African Penguins at Boulders Beach

 African penguins aka jackass penguins are the only penguin species on the African continent and a fairly large colony of them is located near the Boulders Beach down the coast from Cape Town. This colony is one of the two colonies that are located on mainland, the rest being on the offshore islands. You can literally walk among the penguins, and the birds are quite inquisitive and approach and almost touch you.
