Photography holidays in Gambia

Photography in Africa doesn’t get any better than in The Gambia. Footsteps Eco-Lodge is only 6 hours from the UK. Without jet lag, you can start snapping the Gambia on arrival.

 

The Gambia and its people are very colourful. With at least 576 species of bird in addition to monkeys, numerous reptiles, an abundance of flowers and unusual trees there’s always something to capture. Go see the Baobab tree for example, but make sure you bring your wide angle lens!

 

To complete your trip take in the local markets, villages and the capital Banjul, a vibrant and bustling West-African city.

It’s about the person wielding it. Are you in the right place at the right time to join our new contest? More information can be found here! You can also check out the 2016 results.
