What a special place! Our first family visit to The Gambia. We stayed in the spacious and well equipped Sunbird House and the birdsong at sunrise was a highlight of our stay.
All food was freshly cooked/prepared and delicious. The pastries (amazing pastry chef!) would grace any patisserie in Inverness. The soso beans and veggie burgers are a must! We tried a wide variety of dishes…all excellent. Clean plates spoke volumes!
We were warmly welcomed by all staff. Such generous and kind hospitality. Nothing was too much trouble and we made some good friendships.
The stunning beach was only a 15/20 min walk away…and apart from a polite young man who wanted us to visit his beach bar for a drink…we were all alone.
The birding was great. (102 bird species seen) Some birds seemed “painted by numbers”. The large lodge hide was the go-to place at sunrise and sunset and many times in between. A trip with the resident birder Lamin to local reserves etc proved an interesting and informative day. That was fun.
Thank you to David and all the staff for helping make our adventure a memorable one, for all the right reasons. Would we recommend Footsteps? Definitely!
