British-born Jason Florio, who splits his time between London and New York, is a professional photographer whose passion for The Gambia has led to exhibitions, as well as the production of an award-winning book, Makasutu – Mecca in the Forest. His partner, Helen Jones – also his producer and assistant – is, likewise, ardent about The Gambia, returning annually to this small West African country, since her inaugural stay there 14 years ago.

The couple’s odyssey will begin in November with visits to the five Gambian schools near the western coast, which are participating in the Eden Project’s Gardens for Life scheme. Jason and Helen - accompanied by two Gambian guides and two donkeys - will then go onto complete an arduous 700-mile circumnavigation of The Gambia. The start point is Makasutu Culture Forest and they expect to return there eight weeks later, in time to celebrate New Year’s Eve. [The Gambia is one of the smallest countries in Africa, approximately half the size of Wales].
