Stargazing and astrophotography at Bateleur Nature Reserve game farm

South Africa looks like an excellent place for doing astrophotography and observing the night skies. It is relatively more accessible for European amateur astronomers than Chile or Australia. Moreover it is located within the same time zone as Central and Eastern Europe. Usually it should take no more than 16-18 hours (overnight flights) to get from Warsaw (Poland) to Johannesburg by airplane and a couple of hours more, by car, to finally reach Bateleur Narure Reserve which is located in Limpopo/Waterberg area. So with the departure from Warsaw at 6pm, we are usually getting to the farm next day at ca. 3pm being ready to start night observations or taking astronomy pictures by 6pm. Wouter Sc
