Best place to stay!!
We have just returned from The Gambia, for the third time, and each time we have stayed at Footsteps. The location is quiet, a pleasant walk to the beach, which is mostly empty with a fabulous sea to swim in.
The accommodation is in Individual eco huts. They are cool by the round design of the buildings and are en-suite with eco-friendly composting toilets. All the power is from solar, which means there are no power cuts!
The food is superb, a selection of local and western food.
David, the owner, is mostly on-site and has a wealth of local knowledge.
I am not a birder, but we now know quite a few beautiful species. They can be seen visiting the dipping pool, and from the bird hide at the edge of the property.
Several excellent local bird experts can take you on tours.
We started our holiday this year with an amazing 4-day trip upriver, arranged by Linda, David’s partner. She has her own travel tour business, We saw things not normally seen on tours and now have a whole new understanding of the country.
The staff are so friendly and helpful. They feel almost like family now. We will return. Read our guest blog post here.
