Baker’s Lodge offers luxurious accommodation on the south bank of the River Nile, Murchison Falls National Park.
Taking its name from Samuel Baker, an English explorer who first discovered Murchison Falls, and located on the south bank of the Victoria Nile, this beautiful safari lodge has just eight spacious thatched cottages with river views comfortable seating areas inside and out, ceiling fans and large, open plan bathrooms. Inside, there is a huge bedroom with double or twin beds, bedside tables, solar-powered lighting, mosquito nets, a couple of explorer’s chests, a writing desk and chair, a safe, and well-appointed en-suite facilities comprising flush toilet, twin washbasins, shower and bathtub. There’s free Wi-Fi too.
There is a large bar, lounge and restaurant area with alfresco dining options by the river. The pleasant swimming pool is set back from the main lodge, affording a good deal of privacy. The grounds boast a fire-pit, perfect for getting to know your fellow travellers and exchanging safari stories.
You can take boat trips straight from the lodge and hippos often graze the lawns after dark. For game drives, you need to first take the ferry across the river to the northern part of the park.
Baker’s Lodge has a restaurant, bar, fire-pit, swimming pool, conference facilities, a comfy lounge, open plan en-suite bathrooms with solar heated showers and bathtubs.
The views onto the river are vast and magnificent with islands hosting nesting egret birds, elephants bathing and pods of hippos regularly viewed.
Exhilarating river cruises, game drives, birdwatching, fishing, chimpanzee tracking, hot air ballooning.
Hippos regularly emerge to graze on the lawned areas around each cottage. Great to view when enjoying a drink on your balcony, but make sure that you are escorted to and from your rooms at night.
