Singita Kataza House is located right on the edge of the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda and offers gorilla trekking experiences.
This exclusively used villa is located less than ten minutes from the park's headquarters and offers visitors breathtaking encounters with the "gentle giants of the forest".
The villa is embedded in a natural environment. The villa's heated plunge pools, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and large timber-framed windows that welcome the breathtaking scenery inside make for an experience like no other.
The work of local stonemasons, weavers and ceramists plays a central role in the furnishings and design. Elements such as woven ceilings and hand-burned terracotta masonry add to the contemporary African look.
The villa consists of two spacious suites, a junior master suite and a spacious master suite. It also includes a two bedroom staff residence, wine cellar, fitness center, movie theater, massage treatment room, interactive kitchen and fire pit. Fresh products from the hotel's own garden are used for the impressive Rwandan cuisine.
The national park with five volcanoes and a large number of the last remaining mountain gorillas is located in the northwest of Rwanda. Highlights are the tropical cloud forests with magnificent vegetation. Gorilla trekking tours are offered year-round, but are best done during the dry seasons from December to March and June to September.
The Nyungwe forest lies between Butare and Lake Kivu. It is one of the largest mountain forests in Africa. In addition to the evergreen forest, mountain rivers and waterfalls run through the area. Hundreds of tree and plant species make the forest unique. The highlight of the park are the 13 different species of monkeys that can be found here.
The Karisimbi is a dormant volcano in the Virunga volcanic chain and the highest point in Rwanda. At 4507 m, the Karisimbi is the highest of the eight peaks in the mountain range that is part of the East African Rift Valley. The name Karisimbi probably comes from the word isimbi, which means “little white shell” in Kinyarwanda.
