In December our writer Lee and three other travel bloggers flew from a cold rainy London to the small African country with a friendly reputation (courtesy of The Gambia Experience). They spent four days sampling the most beautiful tourist sites the Gambia has to offer, firstly staying in the heart of the African bush on the tranquil River Gambia in their very own floating lodge and then moving on to stay at The Kairaba by the beach (located in the popular resort, Kololi). From idyllic accommodation to spotting wildlife and mixing with the locals, here is Lee’s Gambia experience in BIG pictures…

Lee mostly spent his formative years as a junior Spielberg wannabe, devouring movies in front of a cinema screen, but then a “year out” after graduating turned into a not-too-shabby six years of working, travelling and volunteering across the globe and thus a change of career beckoned. Attempting to satisfy his curiosity and passion for discovery both at home and abroad, he became a concierge at a top London hotel and a member of the prestigious Les Clefs d’Or, whilst still finding time to visit over 60 countries. Although UK based, through travelling he's cannily found a way to combine all his passions - seeking out film locations, off-the-beaten track adventures and wildlife encounters with orangutans, whale sharks, gorillas and polar bears all while wearing an eternal smile on his face. He counts New Zealand, Tanzania, Denmark and Borneo among his favourite travel destinations. Follow Lee on Google+
