Kataza House

- Rwanda Volcanoes National Park - Rwanda

Set right on the edge of Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, Singita Kataza House puts gorilla-trekking experiences within easy reach.

This exclusive-use villa is located less than ten minutes from the Park’s headquarters, providing families or friends with nurturing spaces in which to appreciate the transformative experience of meeting ‘the gentle giants of the forest’.

In response to its unique natural setting, the villa’s two heated plunge pools, in- and outdoor fireplaces and large timber-framed windows that welcome the breathtaking scenery inside ensure a guest experience unlike any other.

The work of local stone masons, weavers and ceramicists are central in its décor and design, and elements like woven ceilings and hand-fired terracotta brickwork add to the contemporary African appeal.

Comprising two spacious suites, a junior master suite and a lavish master suite, the villa also includes a two-bedroom staff residence, wine cellar, fitness centre, cinema, massage treatment room, interactive kitchen and fire pit. Kataza House offers a full staff complement and a farm-to-table food journey that celebrates Rwandese cuisine and fresh produce from the on-site garden.

All facilities and amenities at the adjacent Singita Kwitonda Lodge are at guests’ disposal, providing the convenience of a hotel without any infringement on solitude.

Singita Kataza House raises the bar on environmentally conscious hospitality and exceeds all expectation of modern travellers looking for transformative, purpose-driven experiences.
