    Fort Murchison gives you many options; we chose the room with a view and a private bath. Th staff, food and rooms are all 4 star. The allure of the Nile at sunset just one of the many choice moments. Rustic elegance for the safari...More

    We stayed for 2 nights in March 2017. The twin room in one of the lodges was excellent, rather basic, but very clean and well maintained. The rooms were sprayed each night and nets put around beds. The food (breakfast and dinner) really was excellent...More

    This is a good hotel. Its pictures on trip advisor at present do it an injustice – they don’t look very good and are not professional, but the place looks much better when you arrive. Food is amazing (set 4 course menu, large portions, different...More

    Fort Murchison is very nice and small lodge on the banks of the river Nile. It is located about 30 minute drive from the gates of the Murchison Falls natural park at the end of a very bumpy road. Food at the lodge is surprisingly...More

    Sorry for the late response, gate fares you will use Tangi Gate on the Arua road, and each 24hours is $40 per person and it would be better to either hire a car from Kampala or when you reach Fort Murchison lodge there are... More

    Hi could you tell me if I can arrange a safari guide and driver from the hotel? Also I am staying in Mbale and would like some advice about travelling to your hotel. Thank you.

    Hello, we were wondering ... because the hotel is located outside Murchison Park, do you pay each day to re - enter the park? and is the cost to enter $20 US pp ?
