Bujumbura

— 6 nights
Because of its history, Bujumbura reflects a colonial charm which shows through in its buildings, wide boulevards, and carefree way of life.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Bujumbura: Gitega (National Museum of Gitega & Gishora Drum Sanctuary). Spend the 20th (Wed) exploring nature at Rusizi National Park. There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Musee Vivant, admire the sheer force of Karera Waterfalls, pause for some serene contemplation at Regina Mundi Cathedral, and appreciate the history behind Livingstone-Stanley Monument.

Heart of Africa
Though landlocked, Burundi provides plenty of chances to spend time close to the water, with the capital located on the northeastern shore of Lake Tanganyika. Tourism in Burundi focuses primarily on the capital and the natural areas and traditional towns just outside it, with pristine lakeside beaches to explore, along with tribal villages protecting centuries-old traditions. Civil war affected the country's economy and devastated its population between 1993 and 2005. Political unrest and violence began again in 2015.
