Stargazing near the Gamsberg in Namibia

An unforgettable experience that you shouldn't miss

Introduction to astronomy / stargazing

What you can expect

First of all, an incredible starry sky that is overwhelming with the naked eye! The low humidity and the even lower light pollution makes the area around the Gamsberg one of the best astronomical observation sites in the world.
After an entertaining introduction to astronomy and the southern starry sky, you now know now the difference between a planet, a star and a moon.

Solar systems, galaxies and the almost infinite distances are drawing closer - especially when looking at through one of our telescopes!

The stargazing tour is specifically aimed at laypeople. It has a "common thread" but no fixed process. Depending on your interests, prior knowledge and the questions you ask, each stargazing night is unique - also because the objects to be observed are different depending on the season.
You should allow 2 to 2 1/2 hours after sunset for the tour.

We're looking forward to bring you closer to Namibia's incredible starry sky!
