Baker’s Lodge, Murchison Falls National Park

This isn’t the Nile that you’ll experience in Egypt. There are no Nubian princesses coming down to the water’s edge to bathe here. This is the Ugandan Nile and the princesses have been replaced by wallowing hippos gaping and stretching their massive mouths, and playful elephants spraying great plumes of river water over each other.

Put a safari from Baker’s Lodge on the agenda for your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Uganda and you’ll see plenty of enthralling sights. After all, you’re in the heart of the Murchison Falls National Park – one of the most important wildlife reserves in the whole country. So you can take game drives and boating safaris, watch unusual birds, visit the spectacular Murchison Falls and trek through unspoiled forest on the heels of troupes of chimpanzees.
