Photographs of The Gambia

Home > African Photographs > Images of the Gambia

Below are photographs I took whilst on Safari in The Gambia. The Gambia is an excellent location for people, landscape and especially bird photography. There is plenty of light, there are many locations where the scenery is simply stunning and most of the people are friendly and as long as you ask most are more than happy for you to take a photo of them. If you would like to use any of my photos, see instructions below.

Wildlife Photography in The Gambia

African Wildlife photography in the Gambia is obviously limited to what wildlife is on display, you are not going to get any african elephant photos, but as you can is if you are lucky and patient enough perhaps you can get photographs of Chimpanzees, Hippos and even dolphins!

Bird Photography in The Gambia

This is what most photographers come to the Gambia for, there is a massive variety of birds in The Gambia and there are many safaris catering exclusively to bird photography.

Camera used: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18

All photos were taken using a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18, what I believe to be the best digital camera for safari, travel and wildlife photography. check out my guide to the best digital cameras for safari and travel. Digital Cameras Reviews for Wildlife, Safari and Travel photography.

(Lonely Planet Multi Country Guide)
Highly Recommended
An excellent book to take out on safari with you. Once you get back to your lodge from your game drive, with nothing to do but relax by the pool and read a book. What better than to look up all the interesting bits of information on all the wildlife you have just seen.
This book includes: how to plan your safari and what to take; photographic tips and techniques from a leading professional; advice on where and when to travel; in-depth guides to the best locations; and vital information on the behavior patterns of animals. Extensive information on some of the world's most luxurious safari lodges through to the best basic backpacker accommodation. It is one of very few guides to cover South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Zambia and Malawi.
