Mushroom-growing Project

In 2013, the Volcanoes Safaris Partnership Trust started a mushroom-growing project at Volcanoes Safaris’ Virunga Lodge in northern Rwanda. The long-term aim of the project is to provide a livelihood for low income families from the Sunzu, Nyagatoki and Bugeyo villages neighbouring the lodge.

The group has started growing oyster mushrooms in the specially designed hut constructed on Volcanoes Safaris land. The group plan to diversify into growing button mushrooms. The mushrooms are sold to the community and to Volcanoes Safaris, who serve the fresh mushrooms to Virunga Lodge guests.
