Singita Kataza House
Access And Location
Outside of Volcanoes National Park, on 72 hectares of private land with meadows and wetlands, is where you’ll find the home. The trip from Kigali International Airport will take about 2 hours and 30 minutes by car. Helicopter trips from the airport, followed by a short drive to the property, will be accessible too.
Accommodation & Facilities at Singita Kataza House:
Four suites are available, each with space for two persons. The two larger suites (the master and junior master) are located somewhat removed from the main hub, whereas the two smaller suites are virtually directly close to the common buildings. Overall, the resort does a great job of blending in with its natural surroundings thanks to its use of local materials and its many wooden pathways that connect the individual suites to the common areas. There are currently no photos available of the suites, however Singita does say that the interiors have been designed with a focus on handcrafted touches. As soon as new details become available, we’ll provide an update here. In the meanwhile, we know that the master bedroom will include a private pool, an iPad, and Wi-Fi access, and that each suite will have a beautiful en-suite full bathroom. A two-bedroom staff house is also available.

Activities at Singita Kataza House:
Singta Kataza House will offer an exhilarating variety of activities, as follows:
Expertly guided gorilla treks: There is a mandatory age restriction of 16 for this event. Guests will leave the residence at 7 a.m. to arrive at the Volcanoes National Park headquarters for a briefing. Trek durations will vary from just two hours to an entire day, depending on the whereabouts of the gorillas. How much rain a park has gotten will also affect the forest’s topography. Your trip into the jungle will seem well worth it once your guide has identified the gorillas and you’ve had a chance to watch these majestic beasts in their natural habitat.
Golden monkey treks: Volcanoes National Park is where you’ll go on these hikes, too. A knowledgeable guide will also be present to assist them.
Musanze cave trek: These 32 caves, accessible by a hike of up to 2 kilometers, are a veritable treasure trove for budding geologists.
Cycling tours: Alternatively, visitors can get a bird’s-eye view of the area by taking a bike tour.
Chef’s tours: Visit a small village and learn about the delicacies of the region on one of these tours.
Local market tours: Trips to the neighborhood market are a fascinating way to learn about local customs and traditions.
Information talks: The house features a conservation lounge ideal for pre- and post-trek discussions. You can also peruse maps, books, pictures, and movies.
Kwitonda nursery tours: During these excursions, knowledgeable personnel will explain the sustainable practices they use to serve the local community and emphasize the importance of the ‘farm to table’ philosophy.
Birding: There are hundreds of different bird species to see in the forest and on Kataza’s grounds. Bring your binoculars with you!
Photography sessions: In order to make the most of their photographic abilities, guests are encouraged to make use of the house’s various photo-editing tools.
