Overview

This contemporary and richly textured private villa was designed in response to its remarkable location in this unique slice of Africa. The use of striking local materials like volcanic rock, river stone and oven-red clay bricks connects the structure to its setting. With sustainability as a fundamental design focus, it treads lightly on the land and offers an intimate engagement with the surrounding landscape. Designed for exclusive use, guests can enjoy relaxed freedom and quality time together in this secluded sanctuary. The villa is serviced with a private chef and host, and amenities include exquisite open living spaces, indoor and outdoor replaces, pools, a gym and media room. Guests are also able to access all facilities of the nearby Singita Kwitonda Lodge, including its impressive onsite garden and nursery. Singita Kataza House gives guests the unique opportunity to encounter one of Africa’s most majestic creatures in the wild, while immersed in the beauty of their pristine natural habitat. It provides a comfortable, reflective and nurturing space in which to appreciate the transformative experience of coming face to face with the forest’s gentle gorillas.
