The small African nation of Burundi is centrally located on the continent, bordering Rwanda and Tanzania in the Great Lakes region.

The culture is based on local traditions, with some neighboring influences, which creates an authentic holiday experience. Find yourself an impeke, watch some football, or listen to the beat of the drums at a local festival or event.

Drumming is an important part of the heritage of Burundi. Dancing is often part of a performance, which is incorporated into family gatherings, celebrations, and even some official ceremonies. If you get the opportunity, be sure to make time for a performance by the Royal Drummers of Burundi.

Several national parks and natural reserves make exploring Burundi and exciting endeavor. At Kibira National Park, for example, about 40,000 hectares of preserved forest land provide a refuge and habitat for several different monkey species. Thermal springs can be found along the tracks and paths in the park and the guards can provide scouting work for you to have a unique experience with local wildlife.

Lake Cohoha can be found in the north. It may be small, but it does give visitors the chance to enjoy local beaches. Holiday clubs and local resorts can be found here and at the other lakes in the country to provide a warm, relaxing holiday experience with all the amenities one would expect.

Burundi is the perfect destination for those who love to have a grand adventure. Make it your next destination and you’ll be able to plan an experience that you’ll never forget.
