STARGAZE

Getaway (South Africa) - - TRAVEL -

There are two eight-inch Dob­so­nian tele­scopes here, and Mar­ius will set them up in var­i­ous suit­able spots de­pend­ing on the con­di­tions. On the nights we were there, the su­per­moon was so bright you couldn’t look at it, and so big it over­flowed the frame. On darker nights the sky here is pretty clean of light pol­lu­tion, which means you’ll be able to see and ex­plore the Milky Way. A ses­sion costs R65 pp. You can’t book ahead be­cause it’s weather de­pen­dent.
