Welcome to ROTEC!

"Engage Rotary - Change lives in Turkana!"

Hi again,

we are back from our 'trip of a lifetime' - all safe and sound and full of fond memories!

Meanwhile, we received the following links to two very interesting documentaries about this trip:



Eliye Springs with Lake Turkana in the background.The ROTEC (Rotary Overland Turkana Eclipse Challenge) committee welcomes you and invites you to come and travel with us on a 'trip of a lifetime' to Turkana!

The Rotary Club of Nairobi has organised this trip to enable members and their family and friends to view the 'hybrid eclipse' (see sidebar) - a once in a lifetime event.

And we are not only going there to have fun; our club will use the proceeds of this trip to fund community and other projects (the 'challenge'). So, we will also use the opportunity to visit a few of these projects. | Learn more about this project »

This trip is open to anyone and promises lots of fun (and education). We organised both air and overland packages and accommodation is in comfortable tents with all amenities.

But hurry, space is limited and will fill up fast!


What is ROTEC?

ROTEC is an adventure trip to Eliye Springs (Turkana) to observe the 'hybrid eclipse' that happens on the 3rd of November. The trip is organised by the Rotary Club of Nairobi and is open to all.

All proceeds will go to charitable community projects to benefit the people of Turkana.

Did you know?

Hybrid eclipses are rare and the next one is in 2023 but it will not be visible in Africa.

November's hybrid eclipse, where the sun will be completely covered by the moon, will be the longest this century, astronomers say.
