Sitting snug between Volcanoes National Park and fertile agricultural land, Singita Kwitonda serves as a buffer between the two. In 2019, guests can renew and regenerate at this serene lodge in the shadows of Rwanda's misty mountains.
At Singita Kwitonda, choose from seven one bedroom suites, one suite with two bedrooms, and a four bedroom villa. Everything is linked to the central lodge via volcanic rock paths offering gorgeous views of the mist-laden wilderness beyond. Guests will enjoy the spectacular sight of the Sabyinyo, Gahinga, and Muhabura volcanoes.
Sustainability is the priority and the property will be created using locally sourced materials and engaging the local community to help with the project.
The lodge is named after Kwitonda, a silverback gorilla known for his gentle demeanor. One third of the world’s mountain gorillas live in the lush forests of Volcanoes National Park, home to six extinct volcanoes. Singita Kiwitonda Lodge makes it easier to access these majestic creatures on treks through the thick forests. An estimated 320 mountain gorillas find sanctuary in Volcanoes National Park and so do playful golden monkeys, wandering side-striped jackals, buffaloes, elephants, and a wide variety of birds chirping and hiding up high in the lofty foliage.
Singita supports the Rwandan government’s conservation efforts to preserve the African wilderness and increase the number of gorillas in the wild for future generations. Over 60,000 tree saplings will be planted around the new lodge and guests can join in on the conservation action too.
A journey to Rwanda is also an opportunity to see how much the country has recovered and restored itself after experiencing a painful past. Its people are warm and friendly and embrace newcomers keen on learning about the exquisite animals that reside in their verdant countryside.
