Footsteps Eco-Lodge Gambia

Footsteps Eco-Lodge Gambia

Located in the Southern part of The Gambia, Footsteps Eco-Lodge Gambia, is the perfect place for that relaxing beach holiday.

It has clear blue skies, golden sandy beaches that stretch for miles and lush green nature reserves. Most of all, its welcoming people are kind and gentle with smiles that will melt your heart. All of this only 6 hours from the UK with the same time zone which means no jet lag and you can be sipping cool drinks by our eco-pool or photographing tropical birds as soon as you arrive.

Footsteps Eco-Lodge Gambia, in the bush and by the beach

FootstepsEco1 1Footsteps is positioned 1 kilometre back from golden sandy beaches next to the protected Kunyoong Forest park in the South of Gambia and offers authentic intelligently designed cool accommodation in relaxed and friendly surroundings.

Built in 2002 by two Englishmen, David White and Len Wright, its ethos is to offer a first class holiday experience for its guests while having little or no negative consequence to the environment or its custodians and their culture.

At our Lodge, as well as enjoying the area’s serenity and natural beauty, you can also try some of our local activities which include local cooking, nature trails, bird-watching, beach fishing, cycling and photography or join Sarani and Lamin on guided half and full day trips to areas of local interest such as the capital city of Banjul or the local village of Gunjur with its thriving market and busy fishing centre.
