- Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda
Baker’s Lodge in Murchison Falls National park is the newest accommodation facility within the upmarket Uganda Exclusive Camps and Lodges group, opened officially in early 2015
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 that has been cleared of all the dense undergrowth to reveal beautifully trimmed grassed areas, 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, elephants bathing and pods of hippos regularly viewed.
The direct river access ensures that boat excursions along the Nile are definite highlight including visits to the Murchison falls themselves, downstream to the delta area and scenic sunset or sunrise cruises. For the more traditional game viewing 4×4 safari vehicles and guides are available for excursions through the National Park as well as to the nearby Budongo forest where forest walks and chimpanzee trekking is possible. Special meals including bush breakfasts and dinners are an additional treat available for guests.
Baker’s Lodge derives its name from the historic English explorer Samuel Baker. In the late 1800’s he and his companion, Florence spent some time in this area during his expedition along the Nile river, where he was the first European to view and consequently name the Murchison Falls a little further upstream.
The lodge provides a thatched central lounge, bar and dining area which is raised with wooden decks all around allowing guests to savor the morning sunrise for breakfast, sunset in the evening with 180 degree river views and the cool breezes thereof. The swimming pool area offers a welcome option to cool off from the day’s activities and enjoy the sunset views.
