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.
