The clear, dark skies, relatively high elevation and the lack of light pollution makes Kagga Kamma the perfect stargazing spot. At the Mini Observatory, guests can enjoy spectacular views of the moon, stars, satellites and planets, along with deep sky objects like the Whirlpool Galaxy and Hercules Globular Cluster through our eight-inch Celestron Nexstar 8SE Telescope. This fascinating experience is facilitated by an expert who will assist and guide guests to ensure that they experience the wonders of the sky as clearly and closely as possible.
The 2013 Telescope of the year award winner is the new revolutionary Celestron Nexstar 8SE, replacing the iconic eight-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain that changed the astronomy game in the 1970's. Updated with all the latest features, the Celestron Nexstar 8SE is an amazing telescope that ensures a remarkable stargazing experience at Kagga Kamma.
