Focus4nature had a double stand at the Rutland British Birdwatching Fair and Dobry and myself had a busy time talking to people right through the three days. Indeed I started to lose my voice by Friday lunchtime, whereas I normally last until Sunday.
We got more enquiries about our self drive trip to Namibia than all the other trips put together. I always felt a self drive safari would be popular. Dobry has almost finalised the details and it should to on the focus4natureweb site shortly.
Gambia was always a popular destination for wildlife photographers some 20 years ago, but not so often visited today. Our tour guide Ashley Grove did two lectures on the Gambia at Rutland and generated enough interest that our trip there will be running, although there are still places.
We also made some more contacts to help us develop more trips to new destinations.
