Journey to Volcanoes National Park

Singita Kwitonda is the quintessential luxury safari lodge complete heated plunge pools and volcano views. The perfect setting to kick off the ultimate gorilla trek.
Time for Gorilla Trekking
Gorilla Trekking day is finally here, and we’re as excited as a kid on Christmas morning! Rise and shine with an early breakfast and get ready to meet the kings of the jungle. But forget what you’ve seen in the movies, these gorillas are gentle giants! With cameras at the ready and an expert trekking guide, you’ll journey into the untamed, Rwandan wilderness to hopefully have an unforgettable encounter with the Mountain Gorillas in their natural habitat. After an afternoon in the forest, it’s back to Singita Kwitonda for lunch! Enjoy a farm-to-table meal with no shortage of conversation as you share gorilla tales from your trek.
Off to Tanzania
Hold onto your safari hats, because the adventure isn’t over yet! With your UJV fairy godmother alongside every step of the way, you’re just a hop, skip, and a quick plane ride from your next destination: Tanzania! Settle in and make yourself at home at the dreamy Singita Sabora Tented Camp and keep your safari spirit alive and roaring with game activity at Grumeti Reserve.
Safari Royalty in Serengeti
Who said you can’t enjoy the red carpet treatment on safari? Grumeti Reserve, with its untouched beauty and exclusivity, is a playground fit for kings and queens of the wild. This reserve limits visitor traffic so you have the Serengeti all to yourself (no paparazzi in sight!). And the best part? Grumeti is known for its awe-inspiring lion prides, so we’re in for a front-row seat to witness their glory! A full day of wildlife encounters await!
Faru Faru Fabulous!
And just like that, we’re off to another incredible destination! After a scrumptious breakfast and checkout (sad goodbyes and new hellos, it’s a safari tradition!), we’ll embark on a safari adventure reloaded! Welcome to Singita Faru Faru, where the afternoon is all about enjoying the property’s fantastic hospitality and activities, including an adrenaline-pumping afternoon game drive.
Last Stop: Singita Sasakwa
As the sun sets on our African adventure, we’ll make a final stop at the captivating Singita Sasakwa. Under the iconic African sunsets, we’ll reminisce about the unforgettable journey we’ve had with our new friends. This sweet, safari farewell is the cherry on top of our trip of a lifetime.
