Wilderness Safaris, a leader in conservation and hospitality, further enhances its Rwanda business by officially welcoming Thousands Hills Africa and Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge to its brand family. The move comes seven months after the company’s appointment of Manzi Kayihura as executive chairman of the Wilderness Rwanda Board. Although global expansion comprises part of Wilderness’ long-term plan, the brand’s commitment to protect Rwanda and the interests of the country and people continue to be its main focus.
Since the launch of the award-winning Bisate Lodge five years ago, Wilderness Rwanda worked hand in hand with Thousand Hills Africa to help drive conservation and hospitality to the region, while showcasing its rich diversity and unique offerings.
“We are now thrilled to officially and warmly welcome THA and Sabyinyo to our Wilderness brand family. THA will become known as our Wilderness Rwanda Travelshop and Touring business, and Sabyinyo will join our wonderful collection of destinations as Wilderness Sabyinyo. We are confident that this exciting next step in the evolution of our business will help us to continue delivering the finest experiences to our guests in Rwanda, while growing our positive impact in terms of conservation, reforestation efforts and community upliftment,” said Rob Baas, managing director, Wilderness Safaris Rwanda.
As part of the brand, both THA and Sabyinyo share Wilderness’ vision in protecting some of the greatest wilderness areas remaining in the world.

I sat in spellbound reverence, fixed to my rickety wooden chair in a Peruvian Amazon rain forest village. A local shaman welcomed our small group from the riverboat Zephyr to teach us about medicinal plants from the jungle. Then, blowing tobacco smoke from his cupped hands, he framed my body with a smoke shield as he blew it around my face and over my shoulders, all the while chanting his blessing from the forest.
