We depart late afternoon directly to Sutherland passing over the mountainous landscape turning into the flat Karoo once past Matroosberg. One of the most picturesque views is the plateau before Sutherland turning into the ‘’Bo-Karoo’’ which gives Sutherland the elevation required for the excellent stargazing characteristics.
After landing at about 17h30, a transfer will collect us from the airfield taking us to our guest lodge followed by a dinner after 19h00. After dinner our local guide will take us to the on-site telescopes (about 4 of them, each highly advanced set on a solid foundation) giving us a 2 hour in-depth tour of our galaxy! The next morning after breakfast we depart for Stellenbosch.
We are based in Stellenbosch and operate from Stellenbosch airfield, which boasts one of the most scenic runways in South Africa.
