Singita Kwitonda and Kataza House – Rwanda’s Newest Luxury Gorilla Trekking Lodges

Singita will open its first gorilla trekking properties in Rwanda – the 9 roomed Singita Kwitonda Lodge and the exclusive use 4 roomed Singita Kataza House will start accepting guests in August 2019! These 2 new properties will join Wilderness Safaris’ Bisate Lodge and One and Only’s Gorilla’s Nest as the premier luxury lodges in the Virunga area.


Here is a short video to whet your appetite!



These two properties will complement Singita’s Tanzanian properties – Singita Faru Faru, Sasakwa, Serengeti House, Sabora Plains, and Singita Mara River Tented Camp.


Want an all out luxurious East African trip including the breakfasting with giraffes, trekking gorillas, viewing the wildebeest migration, and visiting Ngorongoro Crater?


We would suggest starting with 2 nights at Giraffe Manor in Kenya.


Then take the morning flight to Kigali, Rwanda and we will fly you by helicopter to Kwitonda for 3 nights with 2 gorilla treks.


After a night in Kigali we fly you directly to the Serengeti where you could spend 3 nights at Singita Mara River Camp (if you have the time add a further 3 nights in Singita’s exclusive Grumeti Reserve). End the trip with 2 nights at one of the world’s 7 wonders – Ngorongoro Crater – staying at the opulant Crater Lodge!


Want some beach time? End with 3 to 5 nights at Mnemba Private Island off the Zanzbari coast!

“I first visited Africa in the late 1980s. I came face to face with a wild elephant, and fell in love with being on safari! I made it my goal to create an African travel company that was all about authentic wildlife experiences. Many years later we are one of the top African travel companies in the Americas – known for arranging custom safaris to East and Southern Africa; personal trips, no cookie cutter stuff.”
