We are astronomers out of passion and our enthusiasm for the universe is contagious so that you will also be beaming with amazement at every gaze into the sky during a tour over the bright sky on a dark night in the Great Karoo.

Hans and Tilanie Daehne of Astro Tours will take you on a tour through the celestial splendor of the Southern Hemisphere.

We have settled for the beautiful village of Prince Albert in the Great Karoo after investigating more than 33 venues over a period of three years.

Prince Albert is the most suited venue for tourist friendly stargazing because it has a dry climate with about five out of seven cloudless nights per week, is centrally situated for day visits to other attractions and has many charming guest houses and restaurants.

Although we endeavour to show you the stars for a horizon-widening experience, stargazing remains a weather dependant activity and the phase of the Moon should also be taken into account when planning a tour over the night sky.

For these reasons booking for a starry excursion should be made long in advance and make provision for a few days to reduce the risk of a cloudy night.
