Perfect place for a relaxing break in the winter. Owners and staff are all extremely helpful and friendly. Lodges are spacious and clean and the food is very good indeed .The area is beautiful with long sandy and empty beaches and the countryside full of amazing birds and plants. Want to go back very soon!

There were times when I could not be any more relaxed, really enjoyed the experience, not your typical hotel aimed at people looking for a unique relaxed experience, catching up with real time and chilling, also integrating with the local community and eating some awesome food.

Excellent service, room, location, the food was good - tomato and coconut soup was amazing! Bird life and plants are stunning and there is plenty to do. Sue Marshall's yoga was 2nd to none and Sue and Ben went the extra mile sorting out trips for us. I wanted to buy a kora and everyone went out of their way...

Footsteps is a great place to go to for a few days or a week if you want to enjoy the Gambian sunny climate in a peaceful and quiet setting and avoid the massive resorts. We had a wonderful stay. The roundhouse accommodation is comfortable, the beds sleep well. Make sure to insist on a double bed if you like...

Our family of four had a great holiday. Footsteps has a warm and relaxed atmosphere, everything runs smoothly but still retains a feel of The Gambia. The food is fantastic. However this is an African country and there is an element of having to find your way with regards to trips and local sights, there are no leaflets etc. The...

A wonderful stay was had at Footsteps, made even more pleasurable by the lovely hosts David, Linda, their dogs Seven and Yoga and the great staff! Footsteps has a great balance of 'do your own thing' and community spirit and we dipped in and out of each as we needed to at the time. It was lovely being able to...

We had a great time staying at this excellent lodge. I booked because I had never seen such great reviews, with so few negatives on TA. On arrival we found out why. The staff and owners work really hard to make sure you enjoy your stay....whatever you need they'll do their utmost to help. The food is excellent, the best...

In the starting point a randomly chosen place of lodging for one night. We were very pleasantly surprised by the place. Clean, neat, quiet and stress-relieving, pleasant staff and very helpful. Highly recommended. NB..The owner gladly like a ping-pong match before traveling, and do not like to lose.😀😀 Marit og Dag-Frode

Excellent place, truly friendly people, very helpful, great location, brilliant concept, eco friendly, money goes to local staff. And most of all: a truly relaxing place to enjoy the sun by the fresh water pool or the beautiful deserted beach. Highly recommended!
