Blending into its surroundings, Kwitonda Lodge was mindfully built to merge with its dramatic backdrop using low-impact construction techniques.

Set within a leafy environment of ferns, giant lobelias and mountain bamboo, in time the lodge will mould into a luscious oasis. The main communal area boasts everything one needs to feel at home, from an interactive kitchen, bar deli, comfortable living spaces and roaring outdoor fire pit.
