What people are saying:

At night, the palace hotel was lit with torches, and the wind passed the smoke, as if you were in an ancient palace. There was no one in the corridor, looking from a height, it seemed that this place belonged only to me. Climbing up to the highest king tower, the torches flashed above the head, and the land of Africa was silent, only the Sun City alone was shining. Pilanesburg National Park is right in front of me, and there are occasional Safari lights beating in the darkness. It is hard to imagine that a large group of lions, elephants, rhinos etc. are so close to me, people and animals can be so peaceful.

    Planetarium of Johannesburg

    Located on the west side of the city near the Motorway which connecting Johannesburg & Pretoria, Motorist towards Johannesburg could see this Building stand tall next to this highway.

    Very disappointed

    This show has not changed for the last 20 years as they as still using the same stale pictures from the apartheid era. The pictures are faded and really boring. My kids were totally uninspired by this...

    Highly educational experience.

    Going to the Planetarium is always interesting and educational,whether the focus is on UFO's or the Southern Hemisphere as seen from the Karoo. Beautiful! No clouds or smog.

    Kid outing

    A good place to educate yourself and the kids about the space. Planets and stars are shown. Current studies are also shared.

    FOR STAR-GAZERS

    Very interesting experience, particularly for kids under 5. The shows are not properly advertised with regards to age-relevant audiences. My 7 year old granddaughter was bored stiff! Well presented...
