South African Astronomical Observatory

What we offer

A visit to Sutherland, South Africa is something everyone should undertake at least once.

Whether you visit in the summer, when the shimmering mirages make one think the end of the earth is just over the horizon or in the winter when temperatures plummet and the ground crunches underfoot, you will not be disappointed by the unspoilt splendour of the Karoo.

Since the early 1970s, the major telescopes of the SAAO have operated on a hilltop 1 800 metres above sea level, near the Karoo village of Sutherland, about 370 km inland. The site was chosen for its good weather, semi-desert setting, the absence of light and other pollution.

What we are looking for

The SAAO promotes astronomy and astrophysics in Southern Africa, by sharing research findings and discoveries. So, to learn more about the wonders of space, visit us or start exploring our website now.
