The ‘Wish List’ is getting shorter…but, if anyone can help us with expedition products, it would be greatly appreciated.

‘River Gambia Expedition 2012 – 1000km source to sea Africa odyssey’  team thanks all our product sponsors, backers and collaborators for all their unprecedented support and product donations. We are extremely grateful and thankful – we’ve had support above and beyond what we could have hoped for. Expedition images (product placement) coming your way, once we are on the journey!

Alas, we still have a number of items that we’d really appreciate some help with – whether through total product sponsorship or discount from suppliers and manufacturers. All sponsors will receive full coverage on all our media outlets, along with mentions in press interviews, whenever, wherever, we can get a plug in there.

‘We have some great product backers: SteriPEN, Yellowbrick, Peli UK, OverBoard, DPx Gear, and Gambia Experience.’ Outside Magazine – Adventure Lab/Expedition Watch: Interview Jason Florio about the River Gambia Expedition 2012

Plus, our resident award-winning photographer and expedition co-leader, Jason Florio, will get some great, exclusive, shots for all the companies whose products we use – taken whilst we are the on the River Gambia Expedition 2012 –for our sponsors to use for their own marketing purposes.

Here’s what we are wishing for:

And, of course, donations (however big or small) will be gladly received…it takes but a few minutes

If anyone can help, in any way, or recommend us to suppliers for any of the above items, we’d greatly appreciate it. Contact: for full information.

Please help spread the word.

And, for those who don’t already know…here are the why’s, where, what’s and who’s

Thanks a million!
