Maropeng has launched regular Sunday carvery lunches at the Tumulus Restaurant. The carvery includes a choice of two roasts, salads and desserts.
Acoustic Moodz will provide entertainment as they combine the elegant sounds of guitar and marimba, setting a relaxed and unobtrusive atmosphere to laze away the afternoon.
Stargazing evening – you are here
Explore your place in the Universe through the night sky, and thereby engage in a personal sense of wonder and discovery. The very scale of the Universe is mind-boggling; innumerable galaxies, each consisting of billions of stars.
Planet Earth appears as a mere, speck of dust orbiting a tiny, yellow dwarf star in the grand scale of things. Maropeng’s resident astronomer, Vincent Nettmann, invites you to join him on a 15 billion light year journey from Earth to the extreme edge of the known Universe.
The illustrated pre-dinner talk, to be hosted at the Boutique Maropeng Hotel, will be followed by a set-menu dinner, all at a cost of R295 per person. After dinner, you are invited to participate on a laser guided binocular tour while stargazing through our large aperture telescopes.
The star-viewing evenings are weather dependent. Please bring your own binoculars.
Date: Saturday, 9th October 2010
Please note: bookings are confirmed once paid for in full and are not refundable within 72hrs of arrival.
