ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)

Burundi may be small in size, but is stunning to behold with its gorgeous scenery, ranging from soaring mountains to small lakeside communities, the capital city of Bujumbura on the shores of Lake Tanganyika and some of the best inland beaches in Africa.

Note: Unfortunately, the current situation is not considered to be safe and most governments advise their citizens to avoid any non-essential travel to Burundi due to sudden outbreaks of violence and civil unrest.

Worldatlas.com will continue to monitor the situation and post updated information as it becomes available. In the meantime, the links below will offer a glimpse into this beautiful country.

  • Times to Travel: Burundi's climate is moderate, due to its altitude, thus making it a year-round destination.

    The dry season is from June to September and the rainy season is from February to May.

    The upper elevations in the mountains and the central plateau area are cooler than the lowlands near Lake Tanganyika.

    For those who venture into this still unstable country, June is the preferred month with minimal rainfall and comfortable temperatures.
