Accommodation

Footsteps Eco-Lodge is a peaceful, serene, natural sanctuary. This makes it an ideal place to relax, unwind, and connect with nature. In just under an acre of its own grounds, the center is filled with fruiting trees (oranges, bananas, avocado, grapefruit, and lemons), flowers, mature trees, and an abundance of bird life.

The composting toilets are odorless and uses no water. The showers use sunlight to warm the water from mid-morning to early evening, helping you to play your part in caring for the environment.

Cabins

For the family visitors, the lodge offers two self-contained authentic wooden cabins named kaira kunda and kaira bunga, both of which are self-catering and have dedicated water and power supplies. The cabins are situated in the garden on the outskirts of the lodge.

House

For a real touch of elegance, try sunbird house. Situated 200 meters away in its own mature gardens, it offers spacious luxury and privacy, while still having all the facilities and benefits of the Footsteps lodge just a short five-minute stroll away.

Roundhouses

The lodge has nine detached en-suite roundhouses which surrounds its center piece eco-pool and the open view kitchen, bar, and restaurant. All roundhouses have their own fruiting trees which supply shade, privacy, and of course fruits.

Instructors

Sue Marshall
Sue has always been fascinated with yoga since she was a child. She used to play around doing some of the poses, and this desire to discover more spurred her on to take this further. Movement has been key in her life, from gymnastics as a child, to studying dance at Laban, and then also a diploma in fitness therapy so that she could learn more about the body and how moving can be healing in many different ways.
