Western Cape: Stony Point Nature Reserve is currently closed for scheduled maintenance! [update]

update (30 August 2019): According to the official Overstrand Municipality twitter account, the Stony Point Penguin Colony has re-opened after repairs to the boardwalk.

CapeNature, the public institution with the statutory responsibility for biodiversity conservation in South Africa's Western Cape, just announced that the Stony Point Nature Reserve is currently closed until further notice for scheduled maintenance and repairs to the famous boardwalk. The Nature Reserve offers visitors the chance to see African Penguins up close, via the boardwalk through the colony, which allows visitors to observe these flightless birds go about their daily activities in their natural habitat, without disturbing or disrupting them.
Stony Point Nature Reserve is located in the coastal town of Betty's Bay in the Overberg about 70 - 90 minutes by car from Cape Town.
