Desert and Stars excursion

I'm going to Tropicana Grand Oasis in just over 2 weeks time. Any info would be welcome.

Also heard about a Thomson excursion into the desert to view the stars through professional telescopes. Has anybody done this and is it good? Thank you

Hi We stayed at the Tropican Grand Oasis in December and are going again in 4 weeks - you will have a great time. We didn't go on this trip but a number of people that we spoke to had and said it was fantasic. We intend to do it when we return. Say hello to Mohamid for us.

Hi Silversurf

Returned Sunday stayed a week at Hilton Sharks Bay Hotel and did the Stars and Dinner trip with Thomson.

Costs 32.00 each, pick up at about 4.30 and drive about 1/2 hour into the desert to a bedouin camp area where you watch the sun set, sit around drinking tea, have a meal, smoke sisha pipes if you want, then when it gets really dark a guy explains all the solar system to you and then takes to over to the large telecopes, if you have a digital camera you can switch the flash off and he puts it to the lens to take amazing photos. You get back to the hotel about 10.00 oclock

Hope you enjoy it, take something warm to wear as it gets quite cold out in the desert.
