Rory Sweet Observatory
Posted: August 15, 2013
Owned by Rory Sweet and designed by award-winning architects Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens, the Observatory houses a CDK20”. Located on the 12,000 acre Waterberg reserve, guests can explore the African skies with the computer automated 20 inch Planewave CDK telescope. Beneath the dome is an double-story library, which can only be described as an explorer’s utopia – filled to the brim with literary treasures, collector’s pieces, skulls (of both the human and animal sort), rare African artifacts and photographs of Sweet’s polar expeditions.
