How to spoil Mom this Mother’s Day
Imagine dropping ringed-planet Saturn into a huge bowl of water and watching it float away. Well, that would not be impossible. But imagine spending an evening under the Maropeng stars with Vincent, the astronomer, as he reveals fascinating facts about the planet, the solar system, the stars and beyond.
A spectacular three-course astronomical dinner has been planned at the Maropeng Hotel in the Cradle of Humankind, in May. During dinner, Vincent will take you on a voyage of discovery as he explores the wonders of the night sky.
After dinner, you’ll be able to gaze at the stars through high resolution telescopes (weather permitting). On the night sky menu is Saturn; double star, Alpha Centauri, the nearest star to our sun; the Southern Cross; the Jewel Box, a spectacular open cluster; Eta Carina Nebula, the birthing of millions of stars that looks like a massive gas cloud; and Omega Centaur, a globular star cluster.
Don’t miss this galactic opportunity at the Maropeng Hotel, on Saturday, 12th of May at 18h30 for 19h00 at a mere R185 per person.
Whilst Saturn is 1.5 billion km from Maropeng, Maropeng is only an hour’s drive from Joburg or Pretoria.
If you would rather stay with tradition, the famous Maropeng buffet lunch awaits you at the Tumulus Restaurant, at only R125 per person. Bring Mom and celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday, 13th of May and while away the day enjoying the country air and the magnificent mountain views from the terrace.
On second thought, why not really treat Mom? Spend two whole nights at the fabulous, much acclaimed Maropeng Hotel. For as little as R1710 (bed and breakfast) or R1980 (dinner, bed and breakfast), you’ll be able to get away from it all and charge your batteries. But hurry, this wonderful offer only lasts until Monday, 21st of May. Don’t miss this special opportunity, or you’ll miss out. The Maropeng Hotel is only a short walk from the Tumulus.
