an ultra-luxe private Singita villa for the ultimate gorilla trekking in style

A sanctuary from which to reset and restore surrounded by the imposing Virunga mountains.

Set right on the edge of Volcanoes National Park, this unique Singita house is a haven for trekkers to unwind after the transformative experience of coming face to face with the gentle giants of the forest.



With sustainability as a fundamental focus and designed with the remarkable surroundings in mind, Kataza house 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.


With features such as two heated plunge pools, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, large timber-framed windows, a fully-equipped fitness centre, a cinema room, and a wine cellar, this modern African home features four double bedrooms which can accommodate eight people.




Set in Volcanoes National Park where more than a third of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas live in high-altitude cloud forests, the sense of intimacy of Kataza House, in constant connection with the vast expanse of the earth and sky in Volcanoes National Park, will open your heart and mind to the unique spirit that is Africa.
