Singita is honoured to be opening Kwitonda Lodge and Kataza House in late 2019 in Rwanda, an extraordinarily beautiful, small country where more than one third of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas live in the high-altitude cloud forests of Volcanoes National Park.
Singita Kwitonda Lodge and Kataza House are located on a breathtaking, isolated but contained 178-acre piece of land right on the edge of Volcanoes National Park.
Set within a landscape of wetlands and lush meadows, there will be eight suites and a four-bedroom villa linked by volcanic rock pathways to a central lodge. Singita Kwitonda Lodge and Kataza House will be built to embody the spirit of Rwanda and offer a tribute to the lodge’s namesake – Kwitonda – a great silverback gorilla whose legend lives on in Rwanda and was known for his humility and gentleness.
The opening of Singita Kwitonda Lodge and Kataza House puts gorilla trekking within easy reach and gives guests the option of combining a visit to Rwanda with a classic safari at Singita’s private concession on the Serengeti plains in Tanzania. Singita Serengeti is home to six unique lodges and camps set in distinctive parts of the vast 350,000-acre private concession.
