The next stop was to see the penguins not in a zoo or the Arctic but on a beautiful warm white sand tropical beach. The penguins are very protected and there are road signs to warn of penguins as they sometimes go for walks around the town and even into peoples houses. If you do hit a penguin with your car you get a 3000 rand fine (£300) and they will catch you due to penguin CCTV. It should have used the penguin crossing is no excuse.
Included in the tour was a bike ride, where the bus dropped you off at one point and drove on 5km to start preparing lunch
The final stop was the Cape of good hope the most south westerly point of Africa. We climbed the peninsula's 300m cliffs and watched the massive waves crash against them. The water was cold as it had come from the first of the seasons melting of the Antarctica ice cap before crashing into Africa. The air at the point is said to be the most fresh air in the world as it as blown without crossing human pollution all the way from Antarctica. We were pretty knackered after our first day in South Africa.
