After driving several hours on a dirt road we came to a small village where we transferred to 4WD vehicles with all our gear to go to base camp. We had a nice grassy area for our tents and this deck overlooking the delta. There were even wood fired hot showers waiting for us. That night, many miles from civilization, we sat on the deck watching the full moon rise over the water. Just before heading for bed it started to get darker. There was an eclipse of the moon. What a surreal surprise as no one knew an eclipse was coming, it was about 90% at its darkest.
