Singita Kwitonda Lodge, Rwanda
The new Singita Kwitonda Lodge should not be missed by adventurers looking to go gorilla trekking. The lodge is set within the borders of Singita Volcanoes National Park, affording an ideal vantage of the Sabyinyo, Gahinga and Muhabura volcanoes, plus the surrounding cloud forest. Sustainability is a big focus: walls are built from local bricks, while heating is provided by a hybrid solar heating system. Besides getting up close and personal with the 320 mountain gorillas, there’s plenty else to explore nearby, from the forests of Nyungwe National Park to the buzzing capital city of Kigali.
