To the south are tropical sandy beaches, perfect for admiring the Blue Mountains of the Congo, on the opposite side of Lake Tanganyika.
This tiny country boasts 690 bird species (including Albertine Rift endemics), national parks of Sitatunga antelope, hippos and crocodiles; cascading waterfalls and some of the best drummers in Africa.
Set on the 800 km long Lake Tanganyika, the deepest lake in the world, is the capital Bujumbura. It combines French colonial town planning and wide boulevards with vibrant African street markets and hand-painted shop signs, full of character.

Thanks to its lovely climate, Lake Tanganyika is popular for water skiing, sailing, fishing and swimming throughout the year. Bujumbura’s restaurants, bars and lake beachside parties are some of the best in East Africa. Burundian cuisine fuses typical African food, with a French influence and includes a good selection of fresh fish. Burundian hospitality is legendary.
