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!! Of course, if you have seen a total solar eclipse, why not join us in Uganda for another, and at the same time, go gorilla trekking, or do some fishing in Murchison Falls, game viewing and exploring of dark rainforests of Uganda

Day 1

Arrival transfer and overnight Boma Guest House BB

 

Day 2

Drive/Fly to Murchison Falls and overnight Murchison Falls River Lodge FB

 

Day 3

Eclipse Day! After breakfast, you will depart with your equip

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

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 KNOWLEDGE …our staff live up at

Murchison Falls, and there is nothin

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 prepared ….either way, after the eclipse we have a few hours

game drive back to the lodge for a celebratory dinner.

More details on the eclipse etc as well as web links will be provided in due course. From the attached

you can see the duration etc of totality
