Photography in Africa doesn’t get much better than in The Gambia. Footsteps Eco-Lodge is only 6 hours from Europe. Without jet lag, you can start snapping photos on arrival.
The Gambia is very colourful. With at least 576 species of bird in addition to monkeys, numerous reptiles, an abundance of flowers, and unusual trees there’s always something to capture.
Go see the Baobab tree for example, but make sure you bring your wide-angle lens!
To complete your trip and take in the local markets, villages, and the capital Banjul, a vibrant and bustling West-African city.
Or you may choose to take a trip upriver and visit The C4RC team (Communities for Red Colobus)
You might even want to push the boat out so to speak and meander along the river in a traditional Gambian pirogue. FairPlay Gambia offer trips to suit everyone.
Life through a lens
You don’t have to be a professional to capture something typical, beautiful, or funny. Taking good pictures is not about the price and size of your camera. It’s about the person wielding it.
We know exactly when and where to go to put you where the pictures are. Try our sunrise/sunset trip and create memories to last a lifetime.
We have two sets of signature photo postcards available to buy at the lodge.
The suggested donation price is £5.00 & proceeds go to local charities. ( This is just a guide price and you can give whatever you feel is right, ie anything from £1 to £££££££, it’s up to you ) All photos were taken by guests who have previously stayed at Footsteps Eco-Lodge.
