The last decade has seen revolutionary advances in astronomical capabilities within the Middle-East and Africa. In particular, the completion of the High Energy Stereoscopic System (HESS) in Namibia and the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT) in South Africa, together with the construction of the Karoo Array Telescope (KAT), also in South Africa and the bid by South Africa to host the SKA, has transformed African astronomy. The Southern African region will soon be able to offer world-class observational capability from ultra-high energy gamma-rays, through optical/near-IR to radio wavelengths.
