Deriving its name from the historic English explorer Samuel Baker, Baker’s Lodge provides comfortable accommodations in this pristine corner of Uganda. The lodge is situated on the south bank of the mighty River Nile transecting the Murchison Falls National Park, and fully takes advantage of its beautiful natural surroundings. This intimate, safari-style property 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 central lounge, bar and dining area are raised with wooden decks all around, allowing guests to savor the morning sunrise for breakfast, sunset in the evening, as well as great views of the river. Full, multi-course dining is on offer along with a good selection of wines and other bar items, all served by the well-trained and experienced Ugandan staff team.
Each of the 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 ten suites has privacy as well as excellent views either up or down the stream. The large, airy facilities are fan-cooled, have netted windows with opening options, customized solid wooden furniture, hanging mosquito nets and especially selected locally crafted items for the accessories. The ensuite 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 offers a swimming pool to its guests that they may make use of during their stay.
