Say Hello to our King Penguins

One of the most visually-stunning creatures in Antarctica and second in size only to the Emperor Penguin. With their vibrant plumage, impressive stature and majestic nature, king penguins are mesmerising animals to watch.

Smile at the Gentoo Penguins

Gentoo penguins are curious and outgoing characters with a seemingly endless supply of energy. These cute and cheeky penguins are also the fastest underwater swimming bird in the world.


Penguin Fun Fact
