THE SOLAR ECLIPSE EXPEDITION – ZAMBIA

2001 – Tusker runs its first Solar Eclipse trip with NASA astronomer, Dr. Laurence Doyle, in Zambia. It occurs on June 21, and is the first solar eclipse of the 21st century. The group enjoys almost four minutes of totality on a remote hilltop in Zambia’s Kafue National Park.

 

Prior to the eclipse Eddie and his team are scouting a prime viewing location, and they get attacked by poachers who set massive bush fires to burn them out. Eddie runs the fires in the Landcruiser, and the team escapes unharmed.
