More to come very soon on our ‘road’ trip on the back of ‘moto’s’ from Mali Ville, Guinea, back to Kedougou, Senegal – all coccyx-shaking eight hours of it! And, that was after our main moto-guy told us it would take ‘two hours…we go now… tout suite we will be in Kedougou!’ !!

We’ll also be posting about reaching the source of the River Gambia in the Fouta Djallon Highlands of Guinea – the start of our River Gambia Expedition proper!

Back soon as!

H, Florio, Abdou and Ebou – the River Gambia Expedition team

    Great journey guys! You are lions! I did The Gambia river myself this year by kajak and its a hell of a job. The hippos near bansang are tricky. Ask in town for fisherman Alasana. He can possibly guide you there. Email me if you need information. Have a save trip guys,
