River Gambia: source-sea

December 2012 – January 2013 – My wife, Helen Jones-Florio, and I co-led our *second expedition. The first recorded source-to-sea expedition along the length of River Gambia. From its humble source in the remote highlands of Guinea, through Senegal and into The Gambia – where it widens to nearly 14km and exits into the Atlantic Ocean. We teamed up with two old Gambian friends, Abdou Ndong a fisherman and Ebou Jarju a school teacher, as our river guide and translator‘ JF

*The first expedition, 2009, resulted in the award-winning ‘Silafando‘ portraits of Gambian village chiefs and elders
