Oggie Flooring: A Statement of Style At Kwitonda Lodge Rwanda

Set in Rwanda’s northwestern reaches, right on the edge of Volcanoes National Park, Singita Kwitonda Lodge’s unparalleled position puts life-changing gorilla-trekking experiences within easy reach. The creative team  behind the  design  are  Architects: Gapp Architects & Urban Designers  Interior Design: Cecile & Boyd   and HK Studio



In response to its exquisite location, each of the lodge’s eight luxurious suites feature a private heated plunge pool, in- and outdoor fireplaces and large timber-framed windows that welcome the breathtaking scenery and volcano views inside. Elements like woven ceilings and hand-fired terracotta brickwork crafted by local artisans highlight the authentic East African appeal of this remarkable lodge.


Further raising the bar on sustainable luxury ecotourism, Kwitonda’s farm-to-table food journey celebrates Rwandese cuisine and fresh produce from the on-site garden, while the Akarabo Nursery is a fundamental part of Singita’s ambitious undertaking to contribute to the long-term conservation of endangered mountain gorillas by increasing their habitat through reforestation.

It is here, in this beautiful African location that Oggie Flooring has worked hard to deliver on the superior floors at ceilings at this exquisite lodge. The immaculate detail, captured in the floors and ceilings, highlight the authentic East African appeal of this remarkable award-winning lodge.

About the location:

Affectionately known as “The land of a Thousand Hills”, this tiny country in the heart of the continent offers a range of other attractions too, and unspoilt forests, lush meadows, picture-perfect lakes and the vibrant streets of the capital Kigali all contribute to the increasing demand for Rwanda on East African itineraries.
