The former Aswa Lolim Wildlife Reserve was degazetted under Idi Amin. It covers the sub-counties of Purongo, Alero, Anaka and Koch-Goma. Although many commercial farmers have settled in this prime hunting ground, one can still find Nile Buffalo, Uganda Kob, Hartebeest and Waterbuck. Additional hunting species include oribi, warthog and sitatunga.

Aswa Lolim lies on the eastern side of the Nile and shares a 68 mile direct border with Murchison Falls National Park in the south and about 48 mile with the Nile in the west. The landscape is dominated by light rolling grass hills with palm trees, small valleys with creeks and light forest. Near the river you will find dense forests and large stretches of papyrus swamps.

The traditional camp consists out of four en-suite tents and six thatched bungalows overlooking the abundant valley below. The concession is 190 miles from the city of Kampala.
