HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO STAY AT BAKER'S LODGE-UGANDA
International rates begin at $US 240 per adult during low season (sharing in double or twin accommodation).
Baker’s Lodge derives its name from the American and historic English explorer Samuel Baker. Baker’s Lodge is perched on the southern bank of the world’s mighty Nile River, which divides Murchison Falls National Park. Baker’s Lodge is an intimate, safari-style lodge built in a large private area offering direct river access. The compound is occupied with large shady trees and a wetland style, hosting an abundance of bird species along the shores. The endless views onto the mighty river are vast and magnificent; you can easily spot elephants bathing and a school of hippos regularly.
Baker’s Lodge offers ten individual thatched safari suites that are raised above the ground with supporting pillars, each with its own deck that overlooks the mighty river. Baker’s Lodge has been taken care of to ensure that each of the ten suites has privacy and an excellent view either upstream or downstream. Baker’s Lodge suites are large, airy facilities that are fan-cooled, with netted windows and opening options and customized wooden furniture. Baker’s Lodge en-suite bathrooms are open-plan with solar hot water showers and baths.
Baker’s Lodge's thatched central lounge, open bar, and dining room are raised above sea level with wooden decks all around, allowing clients to enjoy the morning sunrise during their breakfast. The evening sunset offers 180-degree river views and cool breezes. Baker’s Lodge offers full multi-course dining with choices from different guests and accompanying wines. When the weather allows, travelers can enjoy al fresco dining on the decks or by the riverbanks.
