Overview & Features

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 led expeditions in search of the source of the Nile. Built in the right spot and inspired by the historical background, Fort Murchison is unlike any other in Uganda. Upon arrival you will be impressed by the architecture: the massive tower, the earth coloured walls, the touch of Swahili style … But wait untill sunset, have a drink on our roofterrace and get the second surprise of the day: our exquisite 4 course dinner.

    This lodge is approximately 5km from the Murchison Falls National Park entrance, which with the bumpy roads is about a 20 minute drive. However, it is well worth it for the service and spectacular setting. On arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome, refreshing cold towel and thirst quenching fruit juice. After check-in we were shown to our safari tent, which was of a good size and well equipped with bedside lamp and mosquito nets over the beds. The only things we could find fault with the tent was the lack of a bin and single beds, which doesn’t suit ever travelling couple. Either relaxing outside your tent or on the roof-top terrace with an ice-cold beer, watching the sunset over the Nile, with the sound of hippos in the background, was an amazing experience. The evening menu consisted of a set 4-courses, all of which were served to 5* standard. The shower and toilet facilities were basic, with limited warm water, but still refreshing after a long, hot game drive. The breakfast menu was cereal, fruit and your choice of eggs, so you never started your day on an empty stomach. All-in-all a great base, with attentive service.
