Set right on the edge of Volcanoes National Park, Singita Kwitonda Lodge is in the perfect location to easily access life-changing gorilla trekking. There are eight luxurious suites each with a private heated plunge pool, indoor and outdoor fireplaces and large windows that frame the breathtaking scenery and volcano views. Elements like woven ceilings and hand-fired terracotta brickwork crafted by local artisans highlight the authentic East African appeal of this remarkable lodge.
Further raising the bar on sustainable luxury ecotourism, Kwitonda’s farm-to-table food journey celebrates Rwandese cuisine and fresh produce from the on-site garden, while the Akarabo Nursery is a fundamental part of Singita’s ambitious undertaking to contribute to the long-term conservation of endangered mountain gorillas by increasing their habitat through reforestation.
Affectionately known as “The land of a Thousand Hills”, this tiny country in the heart of the continent offers a range of other attractions too, and unspoilt forests, lush meadows, picture-perfect lakes and the vibrant streets of the capital Kigali all contribute to the increasing demand for Rwanda on East African itineraries.
