We’ll be on the River Gambia as from tomorrow morning, in ‘The Twins’ – our 16.5′ Ally 811 – canoes. We’re setting off from Kedougou, Senegal, towards Mako. On route, we’ll be staying in about seven villages, as part of the River Gambia Expedition. We hope to be in Wassadou for Christmas. Afterwards, we’ll wend our way towards The Gambia.

This may be the last post for a week or so. However, you can check our route on our Yellowbrick blog – which will ping our location every 2 hours or so. BIG thanks to Nick and the YellowBrick team for their support

Please keep checking in and, if we don’t get on before: HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
