Introduction

This page is a collection of comments and pictures relating to places and countries I have visited over the years in Africa. For the full list, see the travel index.
The Gambia

Gambia

The Gambia is a tiny sliver of land in western Africa. It is located on either side of the River Gambia , enclosed to the north, south and east by Senegal, and to the west by the Atlantic Ocean. The main attraction for most Europeans is the excellent climate and comparatively short journey time compared with Caribbean destinations. For more images, try this Google image search

Mombasa, Kenya Mombasa, Kenya

Kenya

The first visit was via Nairobi to the coastal town of Malindi, staying at Scorpio Villas . After venturing south to the Watamu Marine Park and the reef to do some snorkeling, I headed inland to see wildlife in the Tsavo East game reserve. One night was spent at the unusual Salt Lick Safari Lodge , and the other was spent at the Taita Hills Safari Lodge . For more images, try this Google image search

The second visit was a beach holiday, based in Malindi, but with trips south to the beautiful reef at Watamu for snorkelling.
