The small country of Burundi is one of the world’s poorest nations. Here you will find a diverse mix of towering mountains and small lakeside communities, yet a devastating past. The country is still struggling to recover from over a decade of ethnic-based civil war. Despite their troubles, Burundians have a genuine warmth, and their smiles will be one of the things you will remember from your visit. Don’t leave without trying some of the fresh fish from Lake Tanganyika!
