OPENING AUGUST 2019 - BOOKINGS NOW BEING TAKEN

Situated on the boundary of the Parc National des Volcans, Kwitonda Lodge is immersed in 178 acres of lush meadows and wetlands. With stunning uninterrupted views of the mountainous, forested national park, the sustainable lodge sits snugly within the dramatic Virunga Volcano Chain, with Lake Edward to the north and Lake Kivu in the south. Kwitonda is accessible by both road and air, just a short journey from nearby Kigali airport. The gentle, regenerative personality of Kwitonda runs throughout the lodge, encompassing locally sourced materials, bespoke art and friendly staff.

The accommodation comprises 8 enormous suites, (7 with one bedroom, and 1 with two bedrooms) as well as 1 four bedroom Villa (Kataza House). Each suite offers a cosy indoor fireplace, as well as a private terrace with heated dipping pool and outdoor fireplace, perfect for those chilly evenings. The suites provide private dining areas and tranquil rest space, as well as spacious bathrooms allowing for spa and massage treatments to help you unwind for some post-gorilla trek relaxation. In addition, the 4-bedroom Kataza House has indoor and outdoor living and dining rooms, an informal lounge, gym and full kitchen. Furthermore, the main lodge has a bar and deli, wine cellar and interactive kitchen, where you can tuck into a choice of traditional and locally sourced fresh culinary delights.

This lodge provides easy accessibility to some of Rwanda's top gorilla trekking trails, where 350 mountain gorillas find sanctuary. The hustle and bustle of the vibrant Musanze market is just a 20 minute journey from Kwitonda, with the nearby Iby'wacu Cultural Village boasting fun and interactive displays of Rwanda's rich traditions. The integration of local community development means interacting and learning from locals and their cultures couldn't be easier.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
