Safari company Singita is extending its conservation footprint to Rwanda with the opening of the Kwitonda Lodge in late 2019 on 178 acres on the edge of Volcanoes National Park.

The opening of the new property puts gorilla trekking within easy reach and in combination with a classic safari at Singita's private concessions on the Serengeti plains in Tanzania. Besides gorillas, there is much to see and explore, from the Afro montane forests of Nyungwe National Park to the vibrant and sophisticated capital city, Kigali.

Singita Kwitonda Lodge was named after a great silverback gorilla whose legend lives on in Rwanda and was known for his humility and gentleness. The lodge will offer eight suites and a villa with views of the Sabyinyo, Gahinga and Muhabura volcanoes.

Rates for suites range between $1,500 and $1,750 per person, per night, fully inclusive but excluding gorilla-trekking permits. Reservations opened this month.
