Singita Kwitonda Lodge

,
Grumeti Reserve, Singita Kwitonda Lodge
From $ 975 per night

Description

Kwitonda Lodge opened in August 2019, and is Singita’s first foray into Rwanda, bringing with it their celebrated philosophy of sustainable luxury.

 

Located in a prized 178-acre parcel of lush meadows and wetlands right on the edge of Volcanoes National Park with magnificent views of the Sabyinyo, Gahinga and Muhabura volcanoes, there are eight suites and a four-bedroom villa, Kataza House. Architects and interior designers are selecting locally sourced and produced materials while the local community has been engaged in building using traditional techniques. A light footprint is central to the project, embodying the gentleness and humility of the great silverback from which the lodge takes its name. Singita has a long-term approach to conservation, and part of the plan is to plant thousands of trees around the lodge.
As well as treks into the park to spend time with the gorillas, for which the Kwitonda Lodge is ideally located, you will be able explore the montane forests of Nyungwe National Park, see the rare Golden Monkey and visit the local community. Guests will also have the chance to expand the gorillas’ habitat by helping out with the lodge’s tree planting and habitat restoration project. And, with Tanzania’s Serengeti just a short hop across Lake Victoria to the east, Kwitonda Lodge brings the opportunity for a ‘Singita only’ safari experience combining gorillas and the astounding Grumeti Reserve.

Getting There: Singita Kwitonda’s aim is a simple one – that, someday, when the Akarabo Nursery they’ve planted around themselves grows up, you’ll lose them to their surroundings. For now, you’ll find it just a stone’s throw from the Volcanoes National Park headquarters, meaning you’re perfectly located for gorilla tracking and golden monkey trekking. But if you’re itching to get to it? Skip the three-hour drive from capital Kigali, and instead opt for the 30-minute helicopter ride to the lodge.
Who This Villa Is For: In the early mornings, guests from all the lodges converge on the national park’s headquarters to sip excellent local coffee while they wait to be assigned to a guide ahead of the day’s trekking. Permits have to be booked well in advance, as a finite number are issued per day. It’s all highly regulated and organized.
