Baker’s Lodge, found on the banks of the mighty Nile, is ideally located for visitors wanting to explore the myriad wonders of Murchison Falls National Park and the expansive mahogany trees populating Budongo Forest along with our closest living relative: the chimpanzee. Game drives, boat cruises, and chimpanzee trekking can all be combined to result in a whirlwind East African adventure.
With the white spray of Murchison Falls rising up in refreshing plumes amid the zig-zagging gorge it tumbles through, this body of water is quite a sight to behold — especially from the river itself while on a boat cruise. The surrounding park has an array of wildlife including the country’s largest crocodile population and 450 recorded bird species. Budongo Forest will also delight nature lovers with its 360 bird species, 290 butterflies, and of course — their chimpanzees.
Baker’s Lodge’s 8 cottages all boast river views, en-suite bathrooms, and solar-heated water and electricity. The main lodge consists of an elevated central lounge, dining and bar area, and a swimming pool with 180-degree views, too. Activities range from game drives and boat cruises to sport fishing and chimpanzee trekking.
