Solar Eclipse - 9 day
|Sahara – Solar Eclipse 9 day trip|
Grade A to B Fully vehicle supported, little trekking
This programme takes you across some really wild desert to reach Waw al-Namus, the heart of the Sahara, in time to see the total eclipse of the sun predicted to take place on 29th March 2006. Southern Libya will be the best location on earth to see the eclipse. (Eclipse Path | NASA Information Page) There are several days involving driving long distances over tough terrain but also on most days there are plenty of opportunities for a few hours walking during lunch stops or from campsites.
You will almost never camp within sight of other people and often in pristine countryside. All meals are cooked for you and evenings are spent round camp fires under a starry sky.

Should you be only interested in the first few (eclipse) days of this programme please email us to discuss your requirements.
If you have a group of four you could have this trip run at any other date to suite you as a private trip but clearly without seeing an eclipse!.
