Bakers Lodge

Bakers Lodge

Bakers Lodge is the newest luxury lodge in the southern bank of Murchison falls national park, this park is our personal favorite: Bakers Lodge, with 10 safari tents. Each of the individual cottages is raised from the ground on supporting pillars and has its own deck overlooking the river. Privacy guaranteed but with a beautiful view. The main area offers a lounge, that changes daily or has a sundowner drink on the deck while enjoying the sounds of nature. It’s a carefully constructed lodge, with attention-to-detail, and excellent service levels. The ideal base to explore Murchison Falls National park.
