With its location on the eastern bank of the Albert Nile proffering magnificent views of the river, Fort Murchison Lodge stands sentinel over a lush expanse of landscape. With its exterior paying homage to the ruins of Fort Wadelai nearby, visitors will feel as though they are living in a slice of history at this lodge found just outside the wildlife-rich Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda.
Activities in the park revolve around wildlife and the river, with game drives and boat cruises proving the most popular. Visitors can also enjoy hikes, fishing, birding (with over 450 species recorded in the area), and even chimpanzee trekking in the Budongo forest. The ruins of Fort Wadelai, only 30km from Fort Murchison, can also be explored.
Visitors can opt to stay in the lodge’s Tents or in their en-suite Rooms. The Tents are furnished with 2 single beds, linen and towels, a private terrace, and power outlets. Communal ablution blocks are available for those staying in the tented accommodation. The 12 en-suite Rooms have a private balcony with a sofa, a writing desk, and comfortable bed.
