A Rare Solar Eclipse and a Rare Gorilla Experience
Picture courtesey of our customer Mike Ogilvie
If you have an interest in Solar Eclipses and/or mountain gorillas, then the early part of November gives you the chance to see both. On the 3rd of November there will be a rare Hybrid Solar Eclipse (when an annular eclipse transits in to a total eclipse) visible in parts of Equatorial Africa. Perhaps one of the best, and safest, places to see this is Uganda.
This gives you the opportunity to spend time in one of the country’s National Parks to view the spectacle and to have game drives through the Park to see the big 5. The best option would be Murchison Falls National Park with its big herds of buffalo and the Nile riverbank covered with crocs and hippo. It will be well worth your while to visit the actual Murchison Falls where the Nile squeezes through a narrow gorge before thundering over the Falls. A spectacle on earth with another in the skies on the 3rd.
Add in a visit to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest or Mgahinga Gorilla National Park to trek in to the forest to see the famous mountain gorillas. In addition Kibale National Park will give you the chance to see our nearest relatives – the chimpanzees.
Think of booking soon as accommodation will become scarse in all the key eclipse viewing locations and the chance will be gone or the price rocketed!
