Specialist tours of the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB)
The Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB) is a world-renowned seabird facility that specialises in the rehabilitation and rearing of wild seabirds for release back into the wild.
Visit SANCCOB for an inspirational one-hour specialist tour and get a behind-the-scenes peek into the workings of a seabird hospital, and hear about the research, education and training being done to support seabird conservation.
SANCCOB has treated more than 90 000 seabirds since 1964, half of these are its flagship species – the endangered African penguin – which are favourites at zoos and aquariums around the world.
Situated just 20 minutes from the city of Cape Town, SANCCOB is easily accessible via the bus rapid transit (BRT) service or by car/taxi. From its vantage point overlooking the Rietvlei Nature Reserve, SANCCOB commands a majestic view of Table Mountain and its surroundings.
To arrange a tour – please call +27 (0)21 557 6155 and speak to Francois Louw or email email@example.com.
Tours cost R40/US$5 per person – and the chance to adopt your very own penguin and pay for its rehabilitation back into the wild is R500/US$70.
