Visit to penguin centre, a skeleton and/or Stanford

The Club morning outing, on Thursday 6 August, will be a visit to the newly established African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary in Gansbaai. This will be followed by a visit to the Great White House restaurant in Kleinbaai with its Southern Right Whale skeleton or a birding walk in Stanford.

The sanctuary, which was opened in February, is described as a custom-designed, world-class marine bird rehabilitation centre that will provide temporary rehabilitative care to sick, displaced, injured, oiled and abandoned marine birds, with a special focus on the endangered African Penguin.

After Gansbaai the choice will be coffee in Kleinbaai or birding and picnic in Stanford.

The outing will be led by Margie Ogston (083 240 9191) and Lee Burman (082 829 5876).

Meet at Fernkloof Nature Reserve Hall at 08:15 to consolidate transport and depart at 08:30. Bring your own refreshments, especially those stopping at Stanford.
