Singita Kwitonda Lodge
Singita Kwitonda Lodge and Kataza House is also one of the Five-Star Hotels in Volcanoes National Park with part of a modern building built in Musanze near Sabyinyo Volcano, where you are also looking at the Gahinga and Muhabura volcanoes. Each of its luxurious suites has a private heated plunge pool in and outdoor fireplaces and large timber frame windows that allows breath taking and a scenery view of the volcano from a far distance. This hotel is named after a family of gorillas and shares a border with the Virunga National Park which makes it the closest to the park than any other hotel in the area.
Set in a unique handful of otherworldly, dome-shaped villas, sprinkled on a 106 acres hillside property overlooking Virunga range and Bisate village, this new lodge single-handed raises the bar for accommodation in Rwanda and the world rightfully rank among the finest lodges anywhere in East Africa.
The architecture is inspired by traditional Rwandan building methods and everything here has been built from local materials, the pointy-roofed, dual dome villas are widely spaced and every bit as opulent as you might expect, with jaw-dropping views of the Virunga Chain from the sizable balconies and a designer interior of lava stone, wood, leather, thatch, and locally fired bricks. All rooms come with a dual sink, shower, and deep soak tub, along with king-size beds, lounge area, fireplace, and a tablet computer packed with information on the Park, surrounding areas, and a profile of all the lodges’ employees.
There is also a radio in every room so you can order food and drinks from the comfort of your bathrobe. The main building is home to the restaurant, bar, fireplace lounge, and library, the flush fur-lined seats, and twinkling sea glass chandeliers make a rather compelling case to put your feet up and stay awhile. In keeping with their mission to engage with the neighboring community, much of the produce served in the restaurant is grown locally, guests are encouraged to join a guided visit to Bisate village, and they’ve planted nearly 25,000 trees in the area so far. Getting to the lodge requires climbing many steps but it is a piece of cake.
Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge
This is one of the swishiest lodges near Kinigi, set on community land at an altitude of 2,515m on the footsteps of Mount Sabyinyo only a 10 minutes’ drive from the park headquarters. Accommodation consists of 5 stone cottages, 2 suites, and a 14-bed family suite, all spread out across the grass slopes. The stylish and well-equipped rooms were fully redecorated in 2015, and combine ethnically influenced décor with something of a country house feel, and come complete with log fire, mini bar, tea/coffee making facilities, mini-safe, telephone, Wi-Fi, 24-hour electricity, and a fabulous bathroom with shower and tub.
The restaurant and lounge area is in the main building and serves a choice of 23 – course set menu every day. The steep climb from the car park to the exclude makes this lodge highly unsuited to disabled travelers, though it should be perfectly manageable to anybody fit and supple enough to track mountain gorillas in their natural habitat.
Boasting one of the most stunning locations in Africa, this superb lodge lies on a 2,175m hilltop above Lake Burera and Lake Ruhondo and a perfect base for gorilla trekking tours in Rwanda.
