About the Waddle


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since 2011, sixteen eager animal keepers chosen from various animal facilities around South Africa, as well as general members of the public have taken part in the Waddle which spans six days. A distance of approximately 120km is walked on the roads between Gansbaai – where the Dyer Island  African penguin breeding colony exists; through Betty’s Bay – Stony Point penguin colony; ending in Simonstown – Boulders Beach penguin colony. The Waddlers are well supported by a driver and support vehicle.  Logistics and effective media coverage are arranged by Two Oceans Aquarium.
