A great opportunity for avid wildlife photographers.

The Gambia is an excellent location for wildlife enthusiasts and is especially known for the huge plethora of bird species found there. If you are a keen wildlife photographer there’s a fabulous tour you can join which will give you plenty of opportunity to get some superb shots. Our partners, The Travelling Naturalist, have been offering fabulous wildlife photography holidays for over 25 years and they have a few places left on their upcoming ‘West African Photo Shoot’ based in The Gambia.

Dates 4th to 18th December 2015 14 night trip from £2,995pp

"Anyone who has visited The Gambia will tell you about the wealth of colourful bird life the country has to offer, but what is really amazing is how approachable so many of these birds are. You don’t need to be a professional photographer with all the gear to get great pictures, even a simple bridge camera could do the job. The trip is run at a leisurely pace, so giving everyone ample opportunity to get plenty of pictures and enjoy the birds in a relaxed environment, with time out taken during the middle of the day when the sun is at it’s hottest. If you are looking for somewhere to escape the British winter, without even having to change the time on your watch when you arrive, I couldn’t recommend anywhere on earth more". Ashley Grove, Wildlife Photographer and trip leader.
