Space Agency Public Events and Tours Temporarily Halted

Following the announcement made on 15 March 2020 by the South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa, regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the SANSA public tours, learner visits and the space talk public lecture series will be cancelled with immediate effect until further notice.

These measures have been taken out of concern for the health and safety of the general public, learners, tourists and the staff and students at SANSA.

SANSA will continue to monitor the developments around COVID-19 and will ensure that the public lectures and the public tours at the SANSA Hermanus facility are re-opened once the situation has stabilised.

The SANSA team apologises for any inconvenience this may cause and will do our best to provide more online solutions and content for our valued followers.

This decision was not taken lightly and we assure all our stakeholders that it was made in the best interests of all involved.

Thank you for your continued support of our tours, open days, public talks, holiday programmes and other public programmes and initiatives.

The SANSA team wish you well and look forward to welcoming you back to our facilities in the near future.
