Africa Queen: the Bijagos Archipelago

As of the 18th century only few navigators ventured to this vast area of the South Pacific between Chile and French Polynesia. Today we are one of them, on a discovery of the mythical islands made famous by South Seas adventurers. The cruise begins in Valparaiso, the Chilean port once a pit stop for Cape Horners, a charming town on a hill covered with wooden houses reached by elevators from another time period. After two weeks, the Austral reaches Robinson Crusoe Island, where long ago a shipwreck on its deserted shores inspired Daniel Defoe to write his famous novel. Then onto Easter Island (Rapa Nui in Polynesian) with its mysterious giant statues, the Moais, and Pitcairn Island, where the mutinous of the Bounty found refuge after leaving Tahiti -- where our voyage comes to an end.

Stopover will take you on prodigious trips across the most marvelous oceans and rivers of the world. Travel with us as we explore not just the waters of the world, but also the mythical cruise ships, legendary liners, magnificent sailboats and fascinating traditional vessels that take us from place to place.

The Gambia and Senegal in Winter

Find a written account of this video with photos at:


In this film I have tried to capture some aspects of West African life that my wife and I encountered on a trip in January of 2016 to the Gambia and the Casamance province of Senegal. We spent a week in a Western-style seaside hotel in Greater Banjul to gently break us into West African life before setting off for a guesthouse in the bush near Abéné in Senegal, where life is rather more basic. In the Gambia we were fortunate enough to see in the very grounds of our hotel several specimens of birdlife that we'd never seen before, lizards different to the ones we know in France and even a troop of monkeys! The highlight was possibly an impromptu fish market we witnessed on the beach, and an unexpected experience was that of a live performance of music given to accompany a meal at the hotel restaurant. The highlight of our stay in the Casamance was indisputably setting foot on the beach just at the time the fishing boats were coming ashore and unloading their catch. To get to the Gambia we flew from Limoges to Liverpool, took a train from there to Manchester and caught a flight for Banjul.

THE GAMBIA, AFRICA'S SMILING COAST | TRAVEL VLOG

Africa. The continent that never ceases to amaze me. My travels had taken me to southern Africa in the past but I was keen to explore west Africa. When cheap return flights for £170 per person became available to The Gambia, I couldn't have been more excited! It was the perfect opportunity to get my first taste of Africa's west coast.

The Gambia is the smallest country on the African continent and is bordered on all side's by the country of Senegal, except for the west side which meets the Atlantic Ocean.

Frequently dubbed the Smiling Coast of West Africa, I was keen to see for myself what The Gambia was like and what this small country had to offer.

In this vlog, we touch down at Banjul international airport and begin our journey south.

I hope you enjoy my first vlog in my Gambia series! I'm trying something a little different for this vlog series in making it a little more like a documentary, giving you information about the Gambia as well as my direct experience.

Is The Gambia SAFE? (I didn't expect this) | Africa Travel Vlog

It's our last day in The Gambia. So far our time in The Gambia has been nothing but pleasant and we have felt unusually safe in the small African country. I could certainly see why The Gambia is often referred to as The Smiling Coast of Africa. When I landed in The Gambia I didn't have many expectations. However, the people of The Gambia were leaving a strong impression of me.

In this vlog, we journey to Sanyang beach, on the west coast of The Gambia where we run into a heart-stopping encounter...

African Odyssey

Four Kiwi mates, with no motorbike experience decide to ride motorbikes from Cape Town to London, the length of the vast African Continent. Riding motorbikes most people wouldn't ride to the cow shed.

There is no support crew, no make up, no camera man, just four mates from New Zealand on the adventure of a lifetime.

We thought we should upload to youtube to let the Odyssey out of the bag. We are highly disappointed that the film wasn't pirated before now, obviously it wasn't up to scratch.

A massive thank you to all those who made the trip what it was and for everyone who helped make the film what it was. You will know who you are.
