Our tour with Cape Convey Tours was the best! Rob, our tour guide, lived during his school years in Essex and he had a strong British/Essex accent. He was an absolute hoot! Knowledgeable, too and very concerned that we have the absolutely best day.
We leave the hotel at 7:30am. Early, but the purpose is to miss the crowds, which we did.
Our coach ride begins by giving us a view of Table Mountain. That view, with the clouds surrounding it is becoming familiar.
We drive through the beautiful Camps Bay. A quick photo from the coach.
It’s then back on the coach and excitement rises, as our next stop is to see the African penguins, also called Jackass Penguins because the noise they make is like a donkey braying, at Boulder Beach. However, today they are silent. Probably too early in the morning!
We watch as a gull tries to disturb the penguins, taunting them, trying to get them to leave the nest. A second gull circles overhead, ready to dive and take the egg. The penguins roll their necks to frighten off the gull. Eventually, the gull gives up and flies away.
