We talk to host, Boyd Matson, about the River Gambia Expedition, on Nat Geo Weekend radio. Tune in here


‘Hippos are known as the most dangerous animals in Africa. They’re humongous, they’re ill tempered, and they’re unafraid. Needless to say, when two British adventurers nearly paddled over one on their 600-mile River Gambia Expedition, they were alarmed. The trip took Jason Florio and Helen Jones-Florio across three countries as they documented the lives of the people they encountered along the river, anxious over a proposed dam that would potentially change the river in significant ways.’
