Boasting breathtaking views of the Sabyinyo, Gahinga and Muhabura volcanoes and surrounded by high-altitude forests, Singita Kwitonda Lodge offers an experience unlike any of Singita’s other destinations. With its exceptionally beautiful surroundings, environmentally conscious luxury and transformative, purpose-driven experiences, the lodge was designed to reflect the gentle, yet strong spirit of Rwanda’s endangered mountain gorillas. It features eight contemporary suites, and Singita Volcanoes National Park also offers a private villa – Kataza House. The interiors emphasise local design and handcrafted details adorn the carefully planned spaces. Private heated plunge pools and in- and outdoor fireplaces enhance the comfort of each suite and the main lodge features a convivial fire pit, interactive kitchen, ‘bar-deli’ and wine cellar.


Singita Kwitonda Lodge is set on 176 acres (72 hectares) and shares a 1.2km border with Volcanoes Park in northwestern Rwanda. Relative to the population, and the intensive use of land for farming food crops, a 178-acre pocket of land in a country the size of Rwanda is highly prized. 

Room & Suite 

  • 7 x 1-bedroom suites
  • 1 x 2-bedroom suite
  • The lodge also features:
    •  A Gear Room with clothing items that guests can borrow for trekking
    •  A generously stocked all-day ‘bar-deli’
    •  A Conservation Room which houses a private collection of Robert Ian Martin (“Bob”) Campbell’s travel and photographic equipment. Campbell is widely known for his photographs of Dian Fossey and mountain gorillas


Singita Kwitonda Lodge provides a contemplative, nurturing space in which to appreciate the transformative experience of coming face to face with the forest’s gentle giants. For most guests, a gorilla trek is at the top of their list when they visit Rwanda and a stay at Singita Kwitonda Lodge allows them the privilege to encounter one of Africa’s most majestic and gentle creatures in the wild, while immersed in the beauty of their pristine natural habitat.
