Overview

An exclusive-use, private villa situated at the edge of Volcanoes National Park, Singita Kataza House is a haven for trekkers to unwind after the lifechanging experience of coming face to face with mountain gorillas.

Designed with the remarkable surroundings in mind, Kataza has commissioned local stone masons, weavers and ceramicists to create décor and design elements from local materials like volcanic rock, river stone and red clay bricks. The result is a contemporary style with distinct African appeal. The dramatic stone walls are set against a backdrop of mountain bamboo, ferns, giant lobelias and forest trees that over time will engulf the buildings and reclaim them into the forest.

Kataza comfortably accommodates eight people in its four bedrooms and the full staff compliment, including a private chef and host, make the villa feel like a home away from home. The house’s environmentally conscious hospitality is guaranteed to exceed the expectations of any modern traveller looking for a transformative, purpose-driven experience.

With uninterrupted views of the mountains surrounding Kataza, the suite is ideal for post-trek relaxation. The comfortable super king beds and relaxation area mean that you’ll have plenty of opportunity to rest and feel revitalised, even after days full of activity. Draw a bath and soak away your worries or get closer to nature with a rinse in the glass-enclosed outdoor shower. Cuddle up in the cosy sitting area, gazing out at the verdant landscape or settle in with a good book in front of the fire. If you feel like staying in, take advantage of the in-room pantry, minibar and private dining space. There’s no need to leave your suite to feel at one with your surroundings – the private terrace with its fireplace and heated plunge pool provide plenty of opportunity for that.
