Kataza House Villa: An Exclusive Stay in Rwanda


Kataza House a 6-star luxury villa in Volcanoes National Park accommodates 8 guests with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Contact us today for daily rates and availability to book your luxurious stay at Kataza House while on your luxury gorilla tours in Rwanda – Volcanoes National Park.

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 lobelia and forest trees that over time will engulf the buildings and reclaim them into the forest.

This exclusive-use villa is located less than ten minutes from the Park’s headquarters, providing families or friends with nurturing spaces in which to appreciate the transformative experience of meeting ‘the gentle giants of the forest’. In response to its unique natural setting.

Kataza House’s two heated plunge pools, in- and outdoor fireplaces and large timber-framed windows continuously welcome the breathtaking scenery inside, ensuring a guest experience unlike any other. Set right on the edge of Volcanoes National Park, it puts gorilla-trekking experiences within easy reach and the villa’s four luxurious suites provide comfortable, reflective and nurturing spaces in which to appreciate the transformative experience of coming face to face with the gentle giants of the forest.

With features like a fully-equipped fitness centre, a two-bedroom staff residence, a cinema and a wine cellar, this modern African home caters intuitively for guests’ every need, and the massage treatment room, interactive kitchen and convivial fire pit – making for magical fireside evenings – ensure complete comfort. The onsite Akarabo Garden’s abundant fresh produce add to the appeal, culminating in a nourishing farm-to-table food journey that celebrates the fresh flavours of this warm and welcoming country.

Comprising two spacious suites, a junior master suite and a lavish master suite, the villa also includes a two-bedroom staff residence, wine cellar, fitness centre, cinema, massage treatment room, interactive kitchen and fire pit. Kataza House offers a full staff complement and a farm-to-table food journey that celebrates Rwandese cuisine and fresh produce from the on-site garden. Kataza House raises the bar on environmentally conscious hospitality and exceeds all expectation of modern travelers looking for transformative, purpose-driven experiences.
