Penguin Campaign December 2023 - It’s Competition Time!

Join in the festive spirit with Gansbaai Tourism Bureau and get ready for a chance to win incredible prizes this holiday season!

The Overstrand Penguin Campaign, a project by the Dyer Island Conservation Trust in support of the African Penguin & Seabird Sanctuary, aims to contribute to the conservation of the endangered African penguin.

In honour of these charming tuxedo-clad birds, Overstrand tourism offices invite you to participate in the Penguin Campaign Competition!

Participating is a breeze! There are 11 monumental penguins scattered along the Cape Whale Coast, each waiting to be discovered. To qualify for the exciting lucky draws and grand prizes, simply adhere to a few basic rules.

Feel free to visit one or all of the penguins at your leisure, because there’s more good news. The more penguins you visit and share photos of, the greater your chances of winning fantastic prizes!

The good news is, that the more penguins you visit and upload photos of, the better your chances are of winning a prize! So visit one or go for it and visit them all!
