Set on the edge of Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda within a landscape of wetlands and lush meadows, Singita Kwitonda Lodge, set to open in August 2019, will offer eight suites and a four-bedroom villa linked by volcanic rock pathways to a central lodge. This project places Singita's commitment to conservation front and centre as they take the next step in their journey.
It will also bring much-needed attention to the plight of the country’s critically endangered mountain gorillas and provide an extraordinary opportunity to set a new, even higher standard for sustainability across all aspects of Singita’s operations.
The One Planet sustainability framework which supports all of Singita’s operations will be extended to the construction of Singita Kwitonda Lodge, where the set of 10 principles and aligned processes are already guiding decision-making on the ground. Fundamental to the design of the lodge is treading lightly on the land; a conservation philosophy which, in real terms, means sourcing local materials as much as possible, minimising waste, saving water and conserving energy.
