Baker's Lodge

A tranquil African lodge set on the superb River Nile

Fantastic accommodation in a spectacular location

Experience unrivalled views of the national park in a beautifully and sympathetically designed safari camp.

On the wooded South Bank of the River Nile, the highly rated Bakers Lodge has eight thatched safari suites, each on its own deck overlooking the river. The lodge can be reached from two airstrips: Bugungu on the ‘South’ Bank, and Pakuba which is further away. Alternatively, drive time from Kampala is six to seven hours.

Each suite has large, airy rooms with fans, netted widows and open-plan en-suite bathrooms. All have superb river views. On the riverside decks, guests can enjoy al-fresco dining and take in the 180-degree river views. There is a sparkling swimming pool, ideal for a refreshing dip.

From an on-site jetty, boat trips are offered to the base of Murchison Falls, the Nile Delta on Lake Albert as well as for sunset and sunrise cruises. The camp’s vehicles can be used for game drives, visiting the top of the Falls and for excursions to Budongo Forest. Worth mentioning is that hot air balloon excursions are offered, with flights departing in the early morning from the North Bank. Wind conditions depending, guests can either see the Falls or the Delta along with a glorious sunrise over the rolling savannahs of the national park. A bush-breakfast completes this experience.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
