Burundi Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 18%, Burundi has struggled through a generation of conflict that has left it battered, but hopeful for a brighter future. Peace is finally improving things in the right direction. Perhaps the biggest thing that Burundi has going for it is its natural beauty, which is highlighted by such places as Rurubu National Park. It is similar to a mini-Serengeti and Lake Tanganyika combined. Not only can you view wildlife, you can also lounge on lakeside beaches that are equal to those found along the ocean coast. But no destination can be truly complete without some type of famous monument, and Burundi has a cracker. The Livingstone–Stanley Monument marks the place where the legendary African explorers met and carved their names into stone. With so many choices, Burundi is a serious contender as an up-and-coming travel hotspot.
