Deriving its name from the historic English explorer Samuel Baker, Baker’s Lodge is situated on the South bank of the mighty Nile River which transects Murchison Falls National Park.
This intimate, safari styled lodge is set within a large private area with direct river access, large shady trees and wetland areas hosting abundant birdlife along the water’s edge.
The views onto the river are vast and magnificent with islands hosting nesting egret birds, hippopotami, buffalo, baboons, monitor lizards, elephants bathing and pods of hippos regularly viewed.
Each of the individual thatched safari suites is raised from the ground on supporting pillars with its own deck overlooking the river. Care has been taken to ensure each of the eight suites has privacy as well as excellent views either up or down stream.
The large, airy facilities are fan cooled, have netted windows with opening options, customised solid wooden furniture, hanging mosquito nets and especially selected locally crafted items for the accessories.
The en-suite bathrooms are open plan with solar hot water showers and baths with a view in some units. Solar lighting completes the services for this eco-friendly top quality establishment.
Baker's lodge and reservations staff can also organise an abundance of activities in the diverse and dramatic Murchison Falls National Park.
With Baker’s as a home base, go on a water safari past herds of elephants, hippos, and more crocs than you’d like, and stop at Murchison Falls National Park’s eponymous waterfall for a hike to the top: At the top, the Nile, miles wide at other points, squeezes over a gorge just 23 feet across.
