Singita Kwitonda Lodge and Kataza House sit lightly on 178 acres of breathtaking land right on the edge of Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park, a place of exceptional natural beauty where more than half of the world’s endangered mountain gorillas live in high-altitude dense cloud forests.
Designed with respect to and in acknowledgment of its remarkable location, Singita Kwitonda Lodge has been built in response to the natural geology of the site. With sustainability as a fundamental design focus, it treads lightly on the land and offers an intimate engagement with the landscape and a sense of solitude within nature.
A stay at Singita Kwitonda Lodge allows guests the unique opportunity to encounter one of Africa’s most majestic creatures in the wild, while immersed in the beauty of their pristine natural habitat. The lodge provides a contemplative, nurturing space in which to appreciate the transformative experience of coming face to face with the forest’s gentle giants.
Singita Kwitonda Lodge and Kataza House stands as a benchmark for environmentally conscious hospitality, promising to exceed all expectations of the modern traveler looking for transformative, purpose-driven experiences.
The establishment of Kwitonda forms part of an ambitious undertaking to work with the Rwandan government and local, forward-thinking communities to rehabilitate, reforest and maintain the biological integrity of 7000 acres of land, thereby expanding the range and increasing the populations of Rwanda’s endangered species, as well as uplifting and empowering surrounding communities in a sustainable manner.
