Opened in 2015, Baker’s Lodge boasts eight beautifully appointed safari suites on raised decks, set along the southern bank of the mighty Nile River. Named after the English explorer Samuel Baker – the first European to view and name the Murchison Falls – the lodge rests amongst large shady trees and wetland areas. Guests enjoy an abundance of bird life along the water’s edge and hippos and elephants are regular visitors.
With a thatched central lounge, dining and bar area, and a refreshing swimming pool, the eco-friendly lodge offers an ‘Africa of olde’ feel. Built on raised wooden decks to take full advantage of cool breezes and spectacular river views, each spacious thatched cottage includes a fan, room safe, and beautifully appointed bathrooms with solar-heated showers and some also featuring baths.
Bush breakfasts and multi course dinners are a real treat for guests, all served by well trained, attentive staff. We recommend a stay of between two to four nights as this varied eco-system offers so much to see and do.
