Introduction to Burundi

Burundi – The Republic of Burundi, a tiny country with both soaring mountains and lovely lakeside beaches, has been plagued for many years by a gruesome civil war. Though the country’s current peace is fragile, things are looking up for Burundians.

Recent years have brought advances in health care, a spike in coffee and tea exports, and other important economic developments. For the first time in years, a visit to Burundi is a viable and alluring prospect for tourists.

Whether you prefer lounging on the beaches of the enormous Lake Tanganyika or bird watching in one of the country’s many national parks, Burundi just might be your ideal vacation spot.
