Day 6

Went to the southwestern most point of the second largest continent in the world, scaled a 220 meter mountain, saw penguins at boulder's beach, ate pancakes with cheese for lunch, visited SANCCOB and held two penguins, and finally flew across a country. Today was a very full day! We started our day at 7:20 am and and traveled to the Cape of Good Hope. It was beautiful and we learned a lot about the history behind the cape. Next we traveled to Cape Point and scaled a 220 meter mountain. We were able to see for miles and miles. From Cape Point, we travels to boulder's beach and saw the African penguins that live on the rocks. After boulder's beach, we had lunch in Cape Town in the Water Front District. Our lunch was pancakes prepared seveal different ways. I had mine with cheese and tomatoes. Our group traveled to the SANCCOB rehabilitation center after lunch. At the center, I held to different types of penguins, the Rockhopper penguin and the African
penguin. It was so cool. We learn more about SANCCOB through an information video and a lecture by one of its associates. After our SANCCOB experience, we concluded our Cape Town adventure by traveling to the airport and flying to Johannesburg. It was a very bush day and one that I will never forget. Good Night!
