The geographical position of Burundi is in the heart of Africa. It is often named as the Eden in the heart of Africa because of its wonderful landscapes. This is a real paradise to the many tourists who have visited this beautiful country. Not to mention the soft and temperate climate making this country an ideal family holiday destination.

If it's a view that you're after then the sight of the smooth sailing and lake shores in the capital city of Bujunbura is the place to be. The city is thronging on the shore of the lake Tanganika which is geographically the western border of the country. It is an popular attraction for enthusiasts of skiing, sailing, fishing and many other activities.

There are crocodiles and hippopotamus in Lake Tanganika which can sometimes be seen from the shore. The public beach of Kajaga, near the Hotel Club du Lac Tanganika, serves as a convenient place for swimming and soaking up the sun on the beautiful white sands. Tourist can also dine beside Lake Tanganyika perhaps savouring a delicious local fish called the Sangala.


If you are interested in viewing the horizons of Burundi, the peak of Congo Nile provides a wonderful view. From the top the mountains you can view the central plains and the second town of Burundi, Gitega. Gitega, for general information, is a peaceful place with peculiar beauty and exquisite charm. The green landscapes are remarkable and there are some awesome views. You will have a very nice view of the Bujumbura Capital, with Lake Tanganika reflecting the sky like a mirror. There is also the large plain of Imbo, the border town near the Democratic Republic of Congo.
