Recharge your batteries

When you book your holiday at Footsteps Eco-Lodge, you can look forward to staying in one of the most beautiful, natural environments The Gambia has to offer.

Our eco-credentials mean you'll get the holiday you deserve, safe in the knowledge that the environment - and the people who depend upon it - are catered for too.

Whether chatting with friends (old and new), enjoying the finest food and drink, or exploring the woodlands and beaches on your doorstep, Footsteps offers you the ideal place to relax and unwind.

Our freshwater Eco-pool

Unique to The Gambia and at the heart of the lodge is our freshwater eco-pool which is a favourite not only with our guests but also with the wildlife visiting each day.

Powered by solar and filtered naturally through reed beds, it is home to chameleons, dragonflies, butterflies and numerous birds. Some regular visitors are Pygmy Kingfisher, African Paradise Fly-catcher and Little-Green Bee-Eaters.

“I have been to this wonderful hotel three times now, and each time I cannot wait to get back. My fiancée introduced me to Footsteps Eco Lodge and on turning up for the first time I was really taken with the beautiful, peaceful location."


“A haven of beauty, ecological sensitivity, wonderful food, superb evening entertainment & above all really friendly & welcoming staff. Lamin & Sarani proved to be excellent guides on birding trips further afield and locally. Already planning next trip."
