Luxury Lodges in Rwanda: Kataza House

Luxury Lodges in Rwanda: Kataza House

Kataza House, a 6-star luxury villa in Volcanoes National Park accommodates 8 guests with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms set right on the edge of Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. This exclusive-use villa is located less than ten minutes from the Park’s headquarters, providing families or friends with nurturing spaces in which to appreciate the transformative experience of meeting ‘the gentle giants of the forest’.

In response to its unique natural setting, the villa’s two heated plunge pools, in- and outdoor fireplaces and large timber-framed windows that welcome the breathtaking scenery inside ensure a guest experience unlike any other. The work of local stone masons, weavers and ceramicists are central in its décor and design, and elements like woven ceilings and hand-fired terracotta brickwork adding to the contemporary African appeal.

It includes a junior master suite and a lavish master suite with a two-bedroom staff residence, wine cellar, fitness centre, cinema, massage treatment room, interactive kitchen and fire pit. Kataza House offers a full staff complement and a farm-to-table food journey that celebrates Rwandese cuisine and fresh produce from the on-site garden.

The Mountain bamboo, ferns, giant lobelias and forest trees provide a natural backdrop that over time will engulf the buildings and reclaim them back into the forest. Dramatic stone walls rise out of the volcanic boulders and a combination of green-roofed, stonewalled, organic cabin-like structures set alongside light verandas offers a dynamic play on shape and texture.

What makes Kataza one of our favorite gorilla safari villas is that it offers four luxurious suites that have been carefully created to provide comfortable, reflective and nurturing spaces. Be sure of everything you need and more at this exceptional hideaway, including two heated plunge pools, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, a fully-equipped fitness centre, a two-bedroom staff residence, a cinema and a wine cellar.

It offers childminding services and an array of activities to keep young ones entertained. The minimum age for children to participate on a Rwanda gorilla trek is 15 and 12 for the golden monkey trek.

Encountering the untamed wilderness and magnificent wildlife of Africa is a truly life-changing experience, no matter one’s age, and time spent at Singita Kataza House makes for an unforgettable family holiday. It’s a destination that is sure to open a child’s eye to the beauty and wonders of the continent and the natural world.

All activities at the villa are tailored to specifically suit the interests of each family. The minimum age requirement for gorilla trekking is 15, but the villa offers childminding services, as well as an array of activities to keep little ones engaged and entertained.

Enjoy a fully-equipped fitness centre, a two-bedroom staff residence, a cinema and a wine cellar, this modern African home caters intuitively for guests’ every need, and the massage treatment room, interactive kitchen and convivial fire pit making for magical fireside evenings – ensure complete comfort.

The onsite Akarabo Garden’s abundant fresh produce add to the appeal, culminating in a nourishing farm-to-table food journey that celebrates the fresh flavours of this warm and welcoming country.

It’s designed to provide an exclusive-use option for a maximum of eight travelers as family encountering tours in Rwanda. The price of your stay includes accommodation, three meals daily, a selection of alcoholic and soft drinks, house manager, chef, house staff, and a laundry service. The house is open all year round.

Communal facilities at Kataza House are equally well appointed. Both indoor and outdoor lounge and dining areas provide sumptuous spaces in which to relax and dine, while an interactive kitchen encourage guests to get involved with the food preparations.

There is also a wine room, a media room with mini cinema, a gear room, and a massage room – and various spa treatments provided on request. Wi-Fi is set up through all main areas.
