SAAO Sutherland Day Tour
SAAO offers fully Guided tours to the public twice a day, which include a guided walk through the Visitor Centre, as well as a guided tour of selected research telescopes including SALT.
The tour lasts approximately 90 minutes, but may be cancelled due to inclement weather conditions. If the weather is bad, the guide will take you to the Visitor Centre for a movie in case it clears up later.
Please ensure you arrive 30 minutes before your selected schedule to avoid any problems. This is to ensure that we cover all admin related tasks before the tour begins.
VISITORS MUST HAVE THEIR OWN FACE COVERING OR MASK TO WEAR.
Tours: Monday to Saturday. Please note that the tours are closed on 16th, 25th & 26th December 2020. When booking tours, you will be notified of your tour’s exact starting time.
Tour fees go towards the SAAO’s education, public outreach and socio-economic development programmes. Tour bookings must be paid in advance – no payments will be accepted on-site.
This is a secure site and all other buildings are off-limits to the public. In an emergency, you may call 076 900 0308. For queries, please email [email protected].
