Roam into the heart of Rwanda’s lush rainforest and enjoy a spectacular journey with Singita Kwitonda Lodge, which recently opened in August 2019. This haven is dedicated to the legendary 40-year-old silverback gorilla, Kwitonda, who touched the hearts of those who were privileged enough to have met him at Volcanoes National Park. Contribute to sustainability and conservation while enjoying thrilling treks with committed guides at Singita Kwitonda Camp.
Home to more than a third of the world’s mountain gorillas, Volcanoes National Park is perfect for gorilla trekking. Besides exciting sightings of these majestic animals, golden monkeys, black-fronted duiker and elephants can also be spotted. Closer to the camp are magnificent views of the extinct Sabyinyo, Gahinga and Muhabura volcanoes with colourful flowers to compliment the scenery. If you don’t mind the journey, the vast waters of Lake Kivu provide ample photographic opportunities.
