Footsteps Eco Lodge offers authentic, intelligently designed, cool accommodations in a natural, relaxed, and friendly surrounding. The lodge is completely off grid with solar panels, hot water, composting toilets, and grey water recycling. It is also full of fruiting trees and vegetables.
There are nine detached roundhouses with en-suite shower and toilet as well as solar fans. They surround the center piece eco pool, the impressive raised sundeck in the trees, and the open view kitchen, bar, and restaurant. All roundhouses have their own fruiting trees which supply shade, privacy, and of course, fruit. Also available are two stylish self contained log cabins set in their own grounds. They come with a kitchen, lounge, bathroom, two double bedrooms, and have their own bantabas with hammocks to enjoy relaxing afternoons in the shade. There is also a clay brick house -sunbird house - set in its own perma-cultured grounds and fully equipped with kitchen, lounge, balcony and two en-suite bedrooms.
Yoga sessions are taught in a progressive style gradually deepening understanding and awareness throughout the week. Each morning, you begin with grounding work before developing the practice in a more challenging way. The afternoon yoga may be more exploratory, looking at techniques and different aspects of yoga. Classes will help you to develop a sense of balance, clarity, and practicality. One evening beach yoga sunset session may be included in the mix.
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.
Footsteps Eco Lodge is located in Gunjur, Gambia, West Africa. Gambia is an excellent and established winter sun destination with the season running from November to May where temperatures rarely drop below 30 degree Celsius. The lodge is in a stunning, rural, and tranquil location in the bush, next to a protected forest with an array of bird life and monkeys. It is only a 20-30 minute walk to kilometers of deserted, golden, and sandy beaches, yet it is also a 50 minute transfer from Banjul International Airport.

You have included in the price daily healthy breakfasts and three courses dinners. Footsteps Yoga Gambia is proud of their food and its quality. They produce our own fruit and vegetables, but also source locally from neighboring farmers and their bread is baked early morning on site. Fresh fruit juice and smoothies abound served to you, freshly picked and squeezed daily.
Their European food benefits from the wonderful quality and freshness that comes via a climate of long sunny days and plentiful water. Gambian food dishes are full of flavor, usually a little spicy, like Domada (a peanut and chili stew), Yassa (a mustard and onion sauce), and Benachin (which is similar to a risotto).
Wake up and find tea, coffee, and fresh local juices waiting for you at the bantaba. Then, choose from our healthy food options of fresh local fruits, smoothies, muesli, and homemade jams or enjoy a traditional English breakfast of local eggs, bacon, and sausages with grilled tomatoes, your perfect start to each morning while on holiday.
Available from noon till 4 p.m., they offer a varied selection of food: filled baguettes, light bites such as humus and olives and salads. If your appetite needs a little more satisfying, they serve homemade quarter pounder burgers (beef, chicken, and veggie) as well as grilled fish or chicken with chips. Picnic lunches can be arranged on request.
Each evening, they present a three course a la carte menu offering a choice of two starters, three main courses, and two desserts. All menus serve vegetarian, meat, fish, European, and Gambian food from which to choose. They hold local buffets and barbecues every week (around a fire including local music).
