Singita Kwitonda Lodge is a high-end safari lodge ideal for the discerning bespoke traveler seeking gorilla primate safaris in Africa. Developed by the luxurious Singita hospitality and conservation group of Eastern and Southern Africa, this is the first and only gorilla lodge in Rwanda run by the Singita group. With its own access road, the lodge is located on 178-acres of land on the edge of Volcanoes National Park. This establishment takes its name from the gentle silverback Kwitonda, who died in 2012 at age 40. “Kwitonda” translates into “to be humble” in the Kinyarwanda language. The boutique developers of the lodge talk about how they were inspired by the story of this fabulous primate that led them to brand the lodge under his name.

Singita Kwitonda Lodge has 9 suites, with 14 beds in all. Of these, 7 rooms are individual one-bedroom suites offering complete privacy to the residents, while the eighth and ninth room will be a family suite and villa with two and four bedrooms respectively that can sleep from 4 to 8 guests. This accommodation in Volcanoes National Park will have a staff of 70 when it opens, and its owners are committed to conservation of the local wildlife and sustainable methods of running operations with a minimum impact on the environment. The Singita group is also dedicated to uplifting local communities with particular assistance in skill development.

Its strategic location makes the Singita Kwitonda Lodge an ideal base for exploring the beauty of Volcanoes National Park. The main attraction of this lofty reserve is the 10 families of mountain gorillas that can be visited by traveling guests to the park, among the last of this diminishing species left in the wild. Adventure-seeking vacationers in Rwanda can spend one precious hour with these fascinating creatures; strict controls and a permit system mean that each gorilla family sees only one group of visitors each day. You will have an expert guide and tracker accompanying you who will advise you on how to adapt around them. Volcanoes Park is also famous for yet another species of primates, the golden monkeys. To visit them, you will need a separate permit and follow a different trail.

Aside from primate sightings, you can also look for some of the 178 species of birds that inhabit the park. Other active-holiday activities available here include hiking up Mount Bisoke or Mount Karisimbi. Another must-see is the grave of Dian Fossey, who gave her life for the preservation of the Virunga gorillas of Rwanda.
