Accommodation at Footsteps Eco-Lodge, The Gambia


The best thing about our accommodation is you get a great night's sleep!

All rooms are detached and use simple, yet effective techniques to help stay cool: shade-giving trees, a hot air extraction vent and 360° window ventilation.

Immerse yourself in nature with all the creature comforts you would expect from an ecologically responsible hotel: high-quality mattresses, en-suite bathrooms with hot/cold water and a composting toilet that really works. There is a fan and a room safe in every room and they are free-of-charge.
