Set on the Eastern banks of the slow flowing Albert Nile, Fort Murchison revokes the idea of a well-maintained isolated outpost from times where Arab traders frequented the African hinterlands and legendary explorers lead expeditions in search of the source of the Nile.
Accommodation in Fort Murchison consists of 12 en-suite units boasting spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds, bathrooms with countertop basins and showers with plenty hot water from solar heaters, private balconies… The atmosphere is a mix of African luxury with a touch of Swahili style.
Away from the main accommodation, Fort Murchison also offers a more budget option in the form of some non-self-contained tents.
Furnished with 2 single beds the tents share communal ablution blocks. Fort Murchison is situated in the former Aswa Lolim Game reserve, just outside the northern park boundaries of Murchison Falls National Park. The proximity to Tangi gate makes it a perfect gateway for convenient game driving through the park.
