South Africa is home to some of the most incredible wildlife and there is nothing like exploring the nature in and around the Mother City.

Boulders Beach is famous worldwide for its colony of African Penguins and tourists and locals, love to spend time with these birds.

It's a very popular attraction but for most what's more important is the conservation and protection of these animals.

And what better way to truly show appreciation for these animals and incorporate them into the cityscape than by filling the streets with them?

The City collaborated with artist Jacques Coetzer and now boasts a wonderfully whimsical penguin-crossing.

The newly painted pedestrian crossing is close to Boulders Beach and can be found on St George's Street near Rectory Lane.

If you are planning a Cape Town getaway soon make sure you go and visit the Boulders Beach penguins and their painted partners.
