Experience the Northern Cape, South Africa

In 1609 Galileo Galilei made a public demonstration of the first scientifically constructed telescope.  Today, thousands of tourists come to the small town of Sutherland to visit the largest telescope in the Southern Hemisphere, called SALT.  When visiting the area, Galileo Cottage is the place where you’d want to stay.  Whereas Galileo proclaimed that the earth moves around the sun, we at Galileo Cottage claim that with us the earth moves around your comfort.
