Immsersive Safari Experience in Volcanoes National Park
Experience this epic adventure from a prime position on the border of Volcanoes National Park, home to the critically endangered mountain gorilla, at Kataza House, an exclusive-use villa with four cabin-like bedrooms, connected by a network of landscaped volcanic rock pathways.
The Space, Cuvée-Style
With free-flowing indoor/outdoor areas and large timber-framed windows, Kataza House is sustainably constructed from local materials like volcanic rock and hand-fired terracotta bricks to engage with the surrounding landscape. The layered interior design, using artisanal-woven panels in rich deep colors and distinctive sculptural pieces of wood and stone textures, reflects the skill of traditional craftspeople from the immediate Musanze district as well as other communities. The result is unique contemporary African style that combines naturally luxurious comfort with regional culture.
Exceedingly Luxury Amenities
Small wine cellar, fitness center, cinema room, massage treatment room, and interactive, open-plan kitchen, full use of adjacent Singita Kwitonda Lodge facilities, including gear room with the basic equipment/provisions required for outdoor treks, and golf cart available for easy access.
