The expedition was supported by the Committee for Research and Exploration of the National Geographic Society. We were greatly aided by Dr. Patrice Okouma, the head of Nommo Astronomia, the Gabon Astronomical Society; he is at the South Africa Astronomical Observatory, Cape Town.

We were accompanied by a group of 12 through A Classic Tours Collection (http://aclassictour.com) arranged by travel-agent Mark Sood.
