Namibia Stargazing Experience - Discover the jewels of the Night Sky

We have all looked up at the night sky and been fascinated by the dark sky filled with stars, yet, very few of us have seen what is really out there.

Namibia is blessed with the most awesome night sky - a truly wonderful natural resource. Due to its geographical location, climate and lack of light pollution, Namibia is regarded as one of the top 5 stargazing locations in the world.

We offer unique stargazing excursions through our state-of-the-art GPS guided 12” and 14” Meade astronomical telescopes and offer guests an opportunity to discover the jewels of the Night Sky and a possibility of taking your own astrophotographs as mementos. Guests will be taken on a guided tour of our night sky, during which you will observe a treasure chest of deep sky objects e.g. planets, such as Jupiter with its 4 Galilean moons and Saturn’s majestic rings, distant galaxies, nebulae and globular star clusters, to mention but a few.
Look through our telescope and observe another world - all but invisible to the naked eye - whilst enjoying a drink under the Milky Way.

In Windhoek we offer stargazing in partnership with GocheGanas Nature Reserve and Wellness Village 29km South of Windhoek. For bookings please contact reservations@gocheganas.com or Tel. +264 (0)61 224 909
