On and off-site activities

Gambia Holidays offer a wide variety of activities, such as local cooking, nature trails, cycling, birding, fishing, yoga, photography and many more.

Go on guided bird-watching excursions with Lamin, or join Sarani on guided half and full day trips to areas of local interest such as the local village of Gunjur with its thriving market and busy fishing centre.

If fishing is your pleasure then The Gambia coastline produces some of the best fishing anywhere in the world!

Finding the best eco solutions


This year our goal is to become the first plastic free lodge in The Gambia. To that end you will receive your very own stainless steel 750ml  water bottle and refill it at our lodge from a state of the art water purification system, guaranteeing safe clean drinking water. 

Of course, all our power comes from solar panels, but everything else here is good, honest and true as well.


The guests that come to Footsteps for their holidays often bring very high quality photographic equipment and the images they capture are worthy of exhibition in the best of galleria, which is why we have created this one just for you.

Be inspired and when you come to Gambia, bring your camera.

Gambia Birding holidays

The Gambia is a paradise for birdwatching and birders, with more than 500 species to be seen, and Footsteps offers not only day trips for the dedicated birder, but also bird hides on site where as many as 100 species can be seen within the grounds of the lodge.

If you are interested in birding, check out our Gambia birding page and itineraries. Other trips can be tailor made for you if you wish.
