The institution named after Ellen is known as Ellen Campus and it started operating in February 2022. The campus’ major goal is to educate the visitors, researchers, and the Rwanda nationals about Gorilla conservation and it is well facilitated with classrooms, laboratories, museums, and theater.

It is made up of 3 buildings – the museum (Cindy Broder Conservation Gallery) exhibits the revolution of mountain gorilla research and conservation from Dian’s time to date, the history of Dian Fossey, the characteristics of each Gorilla, a game for imitating the gorilla lifestyle in terms of sound, laughter, etc., an augmented reality program of gorilla tracking, a 360 room to show you the life of gorillas.

The other 2 units, one for research – the Sandy and Harold Price Research Center focus on the areas of genetics, physiology, and paleontology. They use the research center to study the gorillas and conduct research on their health statuses through using their waste among others.
 The last unit (The Rob and Melani Walton Education Center) is to educate people on the advantages of co–existing with gorillas.
After a walk through the institutions, you head to the Guardian’s village for a traditional experience.

Ibyiwacu cultural village was renamed to the Gorilla Guardians Cultural village located in the North side of Rwanda in the Musanze district. The village is managed by reformed poachers and was started by Edwin Sabuhoro who was a former warden at Volcanoes National Park where he was truly touched and he says he will never forget the first time his eyes met the eyes of the Gorilla and from that day, he knew he had to keep the creatures safe through improving the livelihoods of people around them hence the Gorilla Guardians Cultural village.

The Rwandese people treasure their homes and the term Ibyiwacu means the treasures of our home and heritage, they find pride in giving you a tour of their homestead to get a feel and experience of their diurnal life.
The village is organized in the form of huts with each containing different information about Rwanda customs.
The first hut has the history of the Ibacyuwi village – how it started, when it was started, why it was started, and for whom. From the second hut, you will get information about iron smelting with someone to show you how it was done and you are allowed to try some shooting with the bow and arrow, the third hut is where they demonstrate how butter was filtered from milk, in the fourth hut they show you how the banana brew was prepared, the 5th hut has a traditional healer with traditional medicine, he explains how it is used.

After that section, you go to the next compound with the beehive hut to signify the King’s hut with the surrounding huts named after people who have affected tourism like Dian Fossey. In this part of the village you are allowed to have a feel of the royal family where you are allowed to dress like royal people and also you get to experience the traditional wedding as you imitate the groom and bride, it is a very amazing experience as people sing, dance, and exchange gifts among others.
The Village tour concluded with the traditional music, dance, and drama from Ngayabatema performing Intore dance and local songs praising the African giants in Volcanoes National Park.
