Frequently Asked Questions
Learn more about Burundi Tourism
Burundi might be a small, landlocked African country, hidden between Tanzania, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, but it certainly has a lot to offer the adventurous tourist who ends up on its doorstep. Although it might not have all of the safari-type, jungle king animals that you would expect to find in Botswana, there are more than enough birds, wetlands, and lakes to make up for it. The Burundi Health Declaration can be yours in less than under an hour if you need it urgently. You might be wondering how it’s possible to get a Health Declaration so fast. Now you can apply for the Health Declaration at iVisa.com and choose from three different processing speeds to guarantee that you won’t be left in an uncomfortable situation at border control if you’ve set off without it. You’ll need the Burundi Health Declaration to enter the country as it is part of the obligatory coronavirus controls that have been set up to manage the spread of the virus.
Despite its geographical position far from the coast, sun worshippers can breathe a sigh of relief because you will still have the opportunity to lie out on sand when you visit Burundi. In order to enjoy a beach day, you must take a trip to Saga beach. Named after the restaurant that once presided over the area, the Lake Tanganyika beach boasts warm water and inviting sand and is situated only 5 kilometers from the capital, so it won’t take long to reach. It’s a particularly busy area during the weekends so get there early and soak up some of the warm and welcoming Burundi atmosphere.
Lake Tanganyika is the world’s deepest lake, so you don’t need to fret about what you might feel in the sand beneath you when you’re cooling down in its waters. To the north of this impressive body of water, you will find the capital city of Bujumbura. There are lots of reminders of the French presence that can be seen in the multitude of French restaurants catering to the small ex-pat community that resides here. It’s a place to see and be seen, so set some time aside to enjoy a coffee outside one of the cafes and spend an afternoon people-watching and observing the ebb and flow of this colorful city.
If you’re keen to learn more about Burundi, a fabulous resource to do so is in the form of the Bujumbura national living museum. Dedicated to wildlife and art in the country, this isn’t a traditional, stuffy museum in an old building. Instead, it’s been built up as both a zoo (featuring crocodiles, chimpanzees, and antelope among other animals) as well as offering tradesman workshops where locals can also develop traditional skills and crafts with formal help if required. You will have the chance to enter a rugo- an old Burundi style home- and explore how life used to be many years ago. Feel free to stay in the area surrounding the museum afterwards and pick up a gift souvenir in the shops or let the local children practise their English language skills with you. They love an opportunity to interact with international visitors and show you how friendly they are.
On the 5th of February each year, national unity is celebrated in Bujumbura at the monument de l’unite. Located at the top of the tallest hill in the city, this epic piece of architecture represents how the many different tribes in the country have been brought together to live in harmony. You can also enjoy spectacular views of the city and nearby lake from this spot, so it’s worth stopping by even if it’s not a holiday.
Drums have long been a vital part of Burundi culture. They feature in dances and ceremonies and you can often hear them from miles away as they’re beaten in celebration or memory. If you want to learn more about drums here, a great place to visit is the Gishora Drum Sanctuary. It was set up in the 19th century by King Mwesi Gisabo to protect the ritual drums used by the royal court. You’ll have a blast watching the drummers beat them into action, wearing their signature red, white and green outfits to reflect the colours of the Burundi national flag. You’ll learn all about two particularly sacred drums, Ruciteme and Murimirwa and will be unable to stop your foot from bouncing along to the sound. Kibira National Park dominates the northern part of the country and is a bird watcher’s paradise. The sheer quantity of exotic animals that can be found here will leave you speechless. Stay very quiet and try to spot the extremely rare colonus monkeys and chimpanzees in their natural habitat. Take a guide to avoid getting lost in this large area.
