Oct 2, 2013: ‘River Gambia Expedition – 1044km source-sea African odyssey‘
One of our early forays into filmmaking. A short film – edited by Jason Florio / filmed by Jason Florio and Helen Jones-Florio – about our 2012-13 expedition to find the source of the River Gambia in the Fouta Djallon Highlands of Guinea, West Africa. Along with two Gambian friends, fishermen Abdou and Ebou, in search of the source of one of Africa’s last major free-flowing (as yet, it has not been dammed) rivers, we began the journey by land from The Gambia to Guinea’s highlands, where the river starts, tricking from beneath the rocks into what is little more than the size of a small puddle. We then paddled the river, in two canoes, from the border of Guinea/Senegal, following the river back to The Gambia, where the now mighty river flows into the Atlantic Ocean.
