“Men in Black”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

This is a brilliant place to visit, and very educational. Once one has ben there and see all the dedicated staff working with the penguins, you appreciate the value of preseving the environment for the sake of these and other wonderful little creatures which also have the right to survival. They are so cute - I could watch them for hours! If you can get there, take the kids for a fantasic experiance. You must phone and book beforehand though.

“Visited with German Guests”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

I have always loved the project and the dedication, have been involved in Fundraising a few Times, my visitors were impressed with the set up, and amazed at all the volunteering going on there. It is a Super Project and Ihope they can do this work for a long time to come. I have a Photo from were they released the penguins on Milnerton Beach, that is years back. But it makes you smile that every once in a while we help fixing things for nature. Cheers Inge

“Good work”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

They are doing a great job there. Their facilities are not as good as it should be and therefore not much to see when they are not doing rescue work and when they are working you will be in the way.

“Huma race fault”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

This a worth a visit if you got time, please donate time or money, they did not ask to be feather and tar with Oil. Shame such a pitty... You can touch and place with them, "own risk" or donate where you see the fiber glass collections boxes. The persons that clean them do it for free, I do not get paid the money go to upkeep and fish food.

“Great cause, well worth supporting”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Wonderful little rehabilitation center for seabirds, they do a sterling job well worth supporting, entirely dependent on donations and public support, they provide a valiant job to save many orphaned or oiled (polluted) African penguins, as well as other seabirds.
