In the heart of Murchison Falls National Park is Baker's Lodge - a brilliant lodge and a highlight of Uganda. Set on the white Nile the views out of Camp across the River are beautiful. It is unmatched in terms of tranquility and is the perfect base to explore the Falls, game drive in the Park and much more.
Baker's Lodge - The DetailsAbsolutely the pick of the bunch in Murchison Falls, this is a luxury lodge done very well. Each of the 10 safari suites offers lots of space and comfort and has a great view of the river. They are all raised on wooden platforms and are spaced well apart so are very private. The rooms themselves are light and airy with a spacious verandah perfect for an early morning coffee.
The main area consists of a large raised area on various levels and consists of a well stocked bar and restaurant. Breakfast overlooking the river as the sun rises is particularly special. Dinner here is to be savoured, the food is great and the tranquil setting is perfect. A short walk from the main area is the good size pool too, perfect for cooling off after a day on safari or a hike to the top of the Murchison Falls.
Getting here is fairly easy, there are a few internal flights to and from Entebbe as well as the Bwindi area, and it is only a 6 hour drive from Entebbe on good roads - The Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary on the way is a great way to break up the journey.
