Astronomy Holidays South Africa Kalahari Vacation Namibia

Astronomy - Africa & Latin America

Our Astronomy Holidays will take you to some of the greatest wilderness regions in the world - offering outstanding night skies.
 
Southern & East Africa
 
The Kalahari Desert - which stretches across South Africa, Namibia & Botswana - has wonderfully clear skies most nights of the year, as well as offering superb game viewing in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.
 
Namibia's Namib Desert also offers superb astronomy opportunities, as does South Africa's Great Karoo and a sleepout on Botswana's desolate Makgadikgadi Pans.
 
Latin America
 
The Atacama Desert in Chile & the Salta region of Argentina offer some of the best star gazing in Latin America, as well as superb landscapes. Bolivia's vast Salt Flats also offer superb night skies.
  
We offer astronomy holidays to Southern & East Africa and Latin America that can be tailormade to your exact requirements, so please call us on 01582 766122 to discuss your ideas.
 
Selling astronomy holidays for over 15 years.
ALL OUR ASTRONOMY HOLIDAYS are financially protected, wherever in the world you live.
