Bujumbura

— 7 nights
Because of its history, Bujumbura reflects a colonial charm which shows through in its buildings, wide boulevards, and carefree way of life.
Venture out of the city with trips to Gitega (National Museum of Gitega & Gishora Drum Sanctuary). Spend the 6th (Mon) exploring nature at Rusizi National Park. There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Musee Vivant, pause for some photo ops at Monument de l'Unite, don't miss a visit to Mausolee du Prince Louis Rwagasore, and look for all kinds of wild species at Reptile Park (Parc des Reptiles).

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.
