Bloulders beach

At Lagos Zoo

This space is a recreation of Boulders beach, a beach located near the city of Cape Town, South Africa. On this beach is a colony of African penguins that settled there since 1982. From only 2 breeding pairs to colony has grown to close to 3000 birds in recent years.

Although this beach is located in a residential area, it is one of the few places where this endangered species can be observed, freely, in a protected place. On the Boulders beach of the Lagos Zoo, this is what we try to recreate - A place where you can observe African penguins , with underwater vision, but that is protected for them and that the coexistence between visitor / animal can occur in harmony.

As such, there will be some rules that will need to be met in order to safeguard the interest of the animals
