Stargazing Experience in the Kgalagadi

Clean air and no light pollution makes for a wonderful opportunity to gaze at the night sky for a unique stargazing experience. Join us on the observation deck after dinner and gaze through our telescopes at the splendour of the Kalahari night sky.

If night-sky viewing of the stars is of interest to you, we suggest that you plan your visit to coincide with the new moon when the sky is at it’s darkest. Because the air is so clean, and there is no light pollution, you will be able to see more with the naked eye than you’ll see on almost any other place on earth. Committed to meeting the requirements of the International Dark Sky association for IDA-accreditation for the entire !Aei !Hai Heritage Park, !Xaus Lodge is leading the application for this status.
