Photography holidays in Gambia

Photography in Africa doesn't get much better than in The Gambia. Footsteps Eco-Lodge is only 6 hours from Europe. 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.

Can you shoot 6 of the best? You don't have to be a professional to capture something typical, beautiful or funny. Taking good pictures is not about price and size of your camera. It's about the person wielding it.
