Mali & Niger 2006 >
Desert Eclipse Expedition

After being dropped off in Agadez, we joined up with the next expedition. I had found Gavin Bate, an Irish guy who runs expeditions all over the world, including the Air Mountains in Niger. I suggested to Gavin that he do an expedition for the eclipse, and Gavin went with the idea. They found a local tour operator to find seven reliable Land Cruisers, scoped out the area, and signed up 21 people mostly from Ireland, England, and the US to go.
