Scarborough is nestled between mountains and sea. A conservation village just an hours drive away from the hussle and bussle of Cape Town. Surrounded by three neighboring nature reserves: Cape of Good Hope National Park, Baskloof Private Nature Reserve and Soetwater Nature reserve means that there is an abundance of natural beauty and ecological biodiversity to enjoy.
The area is home to a over 300 different wild animal species. The most prominent being the baboons, who usually live in the mountains but are frequently seen in and around the village looking for food. The biggest is the Eland, the largest antelope in the world, which weighs up to 300kgs. Our personal favourites are porcupines and penguins. They somehow always manage to startle you. There is something commical about a 'raft' (yes that is the colletive noun) of penguins checking you out while you wait for some waves, or the sight of a porcupine russling in the bushes at night.
See more of these and many more magnificent creatures in Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, which is bordered by a fence that runs along the edge of our village (to enter the reserve, drive 10 minutes South). For more penguin comedy, Boulders beach is a 10 minute drive over the mountain towards the Indian Ocean.
