Doors open at 8.30am and Sanccob will present exhibits by its research, education and veterinary departments until 4pm. Half price tours take place on the hour every hour from 9am, with the last tour from 3pm to 4pm, providing opportunities for the public to see daily centre operations. Tours are R30 for adults, R25 for children aged 12 years and under, and R20 for senior citizens. Penguin feeding takes place at 11am and 3pm.
