- Rwanda Volcanoes National Park - Rwanda

Set right on the edge of Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, where more than a third of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas live in high-altitude cloud forests, Singita Kwitonda Lodge and Kataza House provide the perfect springboard for life-changing gorilla-trekking experiences.

The entire guest experience here embodies the gentle, regenerative spirit of Rwanda and provides a contemplative, nurturing space in which to appreciate the transformative, often spiritual experience of coming face to face with the gentle giants of the forest.

Singita Volcanoes National Park also forms a critical buffer zone between agricultural plots and the habitat of the gorillas that find refuge here.

Tucked between Tanzania to the east, Uganda to the north and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west, Rwanda is a remarkably small country nestled in a 10,169-square mile pocket of land, featuring everything from imposing mountains to shimmering lakes.

Known affectionately as “The land of a Thousand Hills” due to the endless stretches of undulating hills in its topography, this tiny country offers as many experiences too.

Apart from gorilla trekking, there is much to see and explore, including golden monkey treks, the rainforests and canopy tours of Nyungwe National Park, the emerald waters of the primordial Lake Kivu and the vibrant sophistication of the capital, Kigali.

Singita Volcanoes National Park gives guests the option to combine a visit to Rwanda with a classic safari at Singita’s private concession in the Serengeti in Tanzania. Singita Serengeti is home to six unique lodges and camps set in distinctive parts of the vast 350,000-acre private concession.
