For those of you who have not yet seen a TOTAL Solar Eclipse, it’s very hard to explain the entire experience, as that’s what it is, an experience that affects your every sense.

From the start of the ‘crossing’ of the sun by the moon, and the steel-grey light that is so eerie, to the chilling of temperatures, the solar winds a moment before ‘totality’, the spark of bright light from the ‘diamond ring’, and that sudden dip into darkness, so strange, and humbling.

So weird, and ‘out of this world’, you have to see at least one in your lifetime! Mind you, once you have seen one eclipse, you will be hooked!!

03 Nov Eclipse Day! After breakfast, you will depart with your equipment, lunch, cool boxes etc and

head off towards the eclipse viewing site. This was identified and recce’d in November 2012.

Enjoy a game drive en route, arriving around 13h30.

We will, of course, be on weather websites in the lead up to this day, both from our Entebbe office and

on site and will be in communication with other groups. A call will need to be made as to where we

locate for this viewing, based on websites and in our case LOCAL

Murchison Falls, and there is nothing better than current local knowledge.

We have also recce’d 2 other potential sites , if the initial site clouds up …but as you all know this is in

the hands of God, all we can do is be

game drive back to the lodge for a celebratory dinner.
