Burundi is a country in Africa, surrounded by Rwanda to the north, Tanzania to the east and southeast, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west. It’s located in the Great Rift Valley, where Lake Tanganyika forms its southwestern border. The capital cities are Gitega and Bujumbura, the largest city.

Burundi has some interesting places to visit. One of them is the Gishora Drum Sanctuary, where talented performers showcase their drumming skills. It’s a must-see and worth the trip to Burundi. Another attraction is the Eglise Vivante de Jesus Christ, a church where ushers can help English or French-speaking visitors with translation kits.

Nature lovers can explore the beauty of River Rusizi, where you can spot hippos, birds, and enjoy the view of the Congolese mountains. The river’s red waters blend into the blue of Lake Tanganyika, making it a perfect spot for an excursion.

For wildlife enthusiasts, Kibira National Park offers chimpanzee tracking. These primates live in communities, led by an Alpha Male. Tracking them in the forest is an exceptional experience, lasting 3-5 hours in groups of eight. Once you find them, you get to spend an hour interacting with these fascinating creatures. The park is also home to gorillas, which, unlike chimpanzees, are typically vegetarians.
