Fort Murchison is set in the former Aswa Lolim Game reserve, just outside the northern park boundaries of Murchison falls Wildlife National Park. It is set in a beautiful surrounding and looks out on the majestic 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.
