Have you ever looked up to the sky during the night and it was too black and pure to ignore it?
Basically, there is no reason good enough that deserves sacrificing our precious sleep, but there are some places where the skies are pitch-black and very starry that could lead us to sacrifice more things than sleep.
They are unbelievably magical that looking at them is powerful enough to make us feel like we are not lacking any sleep.
Nature is filled with wonders that we shouldn’t be missing, and making reservations at national parks may not always be the best idea. This is why it is best to check Dark-Sky Sanctuaries and Reserves, have you ever heard of them?
There are only a few places in the world where the skies are extremely gorgeous for stargazing, and because they could be “polluted” by the light, the International Dark-Sky Association had to protect them and turn them into sanctuaries, and we have collected them all for you to check them out.
NamibRand Nature Reserve, Namibia
Can you imagine taking the person you love the most to where the Milky Way can be seen in all of its glory?
In Namibia, there is an open-air lodging option where you can experience both stargazing and a safari in one place, which is perfect if they are both in your travel bucket list.
NamibRand is Africa’s biggest and most accessible private nature reserves, which makes it a great destination for any nature enthusiast and adventure seeker.
Spend the entire day in a safari, discover the wilderness, and enjoy the gorgeous nature. At night, you can relax and watch the dancing stars that will make you feel as if you are in outer space.
Mont Megantic, Quebec
The first designated Dark-Sky Reserve ever is Mont Megantic that is now topped with its own astronomical observatory.
