  1. Singita Kwitonda Lodge & Kataza House

With 8 luxury suites and a 4-bedroom private villa for exclusive use, Singita Kwitonda Lodge in Rwanda is the newest addition to Rwanda gorilla safari lodging in the Volcanoes conservation frontier as it has just been commissioned a few months ago by the Rwandan President Paul Kagame.

Each of the rooms in this boost of indoor water heated plunge pool, both an indoor and outdoor fireplace.

Singita Kwitonda was built following an eco-conscious design with sustainably sourced materials in order to preserve the pristine Volcanoes ecosystem that is a habitat to over 200 mountain gorillas.

While staying at this grand lodge on your gorilla tour Rwanda you will be in for dramatic views over the Sabyinyo, Gahanna and Muhabura volcanoes which proudly stand from in a distance from the lodge.

With a hope to extend the agricultural plots surrounding the lodge into the park border toward more habitat for gorillas, Kwitonda Lodge strives to use its isolated 178-acres for ‘treading lightly on the land’, claiming sustainability to be at the core of its design.

  1.  Magashi Camp
