Singita Kwitonda Lodge
Set in Rwanda’s northwestern reaches, right on the edge of Volcanoes National Park, Singita Kwitonda Lodge’s unparalleled position puts life-changing gorilla-trekking experiences within easy reach. With its exceptional natural beauty, environmentally conscious luxury and purpose-driven experiences, the lodge is dedicated to the legendary 40-year-old silverback gorilla, Kwitonda, who touched the hearts of those who were privileged enough to have met him at Volcanoes National Park. The park is also home to five of the eight extinct volcanoes that make up the Virunga Mountains.
Designed to leave a light ecological footprint, eight suites (and the private four-bedroom villa – Kataza House) provide a luxurious retreat ideal for adventurous families. The suite interiors offer a tranquil haven with free-flowing indoor and outdoor areas including a heated private pool in each suite. A sociable fire pit, bar-deli interactive kitchen and wine cellar complete the picture.
Singita Kwitonda Lodge is a short drive to the Volcanoes National Park headquarters for the transformative experience of coming face to face with the rare mountain gorilla or golden monkeys. Here guests are matched with a guide before starting their hike through the dense rainforest. Other activities include Kwitonda Nursery Tour, wine tasting, in-room massage treatments, cycling tours, and Kids’ activities.
