So I have just returned from a CRAZY and HECTIC 5 days visiting the marine and care placements we work with in the Cape. I travelled through the Overberg region- absolutely magnificent- and ended with three days in Cape Town.
I was lucky enough to go on a shark boat at Kleinbaai and we got to see 8 Great Whites the largest being 3.6m long.
I also got to visit a newly built African Penguin and Seabird sanctuary and got to meet to of the hospital’s sickly penguins.
We then headed back to the Stanford region to visit a sanctuary and had a private tour. Amazing animals.
Cape Town was a crazy dash from children’s hospitals to autism and deaf schools and schools for special needs. I think I am a lot more aware on what goes on now in these specialized schools and how important they are and the kids I met along the way were so sweet. Their carers and teachers were also incredible. Cape Town is lucky to have such amazing institutions!
