Burundi travel guide

A tiny nation tucked on the eastern side of Africa, Burundi exhibits a range of alluring landscapes and national parks. Infamous as a travel destination, it surely is full of marvels that have been left unexplored. You cannot consider yourself an experienced backpacker unless you’ve been here! Read more

  • The best time to visit Burundi is anytime between April and September as these months are characterised by pleasant temperatures and mild rainfall. October onwards, the climate sees an increase in temperature, humidity as well as rainfall, making travel a tedious task during this time.
  • Prior to your travel, make sure to plan your itinerary in advance as Burundi is no Times Square. For safety reasons, it is advised to hire a personal guide or escort throughout one’s time in Burundi. French, Kurundi and English here are the official languages which is convenient for visitors as communication barriers are unlikely.
  • If you are wondering, “How can I get to Burundi? Do they even have an International airport?”, the answer is that they do! In fact, many world-class airlines such as RwandAir, Indigo, Spicejet, Ethiopian Airlines, Qatar Airways, Air India and Etihad Airways fly to Bujumbura (The former capital of Burundi) from various cities in India. It is the only city having an international airport; hence, you could expect taxi and bus services outside the terminals services on arrival.
  • What to see in Burundi?

  • In Bujumbura, visit the Ruzizi National Parl. Located on the banks of the Ruzizi River, this nature reserve is home to wildlife such as crocodiles. Tourists can enjoy many activities such as camping, safari and boat rides.
  • Take a glimpse of Lake Tanganyika, known to be the longest freshwater lake in the world; it is a true eye-catcher. The river is based around an island creating a beautiful setting to unwind and relax. Don’t be surprised if you witness some wildlife here and there.
  • Hike on Mount Heha, the largest of its kind in Burundi; it offers spectacular views of the country. Away from the daily chaos, the green landscapes here are like yoga to your mind.
  • Not far from Bujumbura, head over to Gitega, the current capital of Burundi with a rich history. Learn the same at the National Museum which dates back to the time the city was ruled by Belgian’s.
  • Near Rutana, make your way to the Chutes da la Karera waterfalls. Tourists can enjoy a small shower and take photographs. The sound of this waterfall is pure and calming.
  • Burundi cuisine is one of the tastiest cuisines you could have in all of Africa. Most of the dishes are cooked using a primitive technique that is coal and wood fire. Boko Boko Harees, Ibiharage, Brochette, Nyama and Renga Renga are a must-try.
  • Shopping in Burundi is like shopping anywhere else on this continent. The markets sell a lot of crafts, handmade baskets, pots and clothing. Grab these souvenirs for yourself as well as your family back home.
