Burundi – A Country Emerging to Tourists

Monday, March 5th, 2012

Not many people dare to visit Burundi and because of that this African country located in the heart of the continent has untouched scenery by the hand of men. However, the landscapes and evergreen forests along with the amazing mountaintops make this country a heaven on earth.

Even so, only the ones that have the courage to visit Burundi really understand why the country is so beautiful. Since 2005, this African country has become safer because of the new politics imposed by the new leader. The president was elected democratically and he is trying to bring order to the chaos. There are 2 groups within the country that feel the need to fight one another but recently the bloody wars stopped and people are trying to get along. People in Burundi aren’t very used to visitors and that’s why many regions aren’t that friendly with new comers. In big cities, people have evolved and they live a modern life trying to cope with the changes. The authorities headed by the democrat president try every day to make the country a safer place for its people as well as for anyone who visits the country. Of course, this is hard sometimes because of the rebels that are always trying to destabilize the situation. In the near future, Burundi will be safer and more and more people will have a chance to visit it. The unexplored sceneries are waiting to be discovered and people always seem to be happy to meet new people even if they are not used to having them in the country.

As a visitor in this country, first you need to understand that people have lived like this for ages and it’s hard for them to accept anyone and everything. It’s best if you preserve their culture and treat them the best you can. Clothing style should be conservative. It’s best if you carry with you a map in case you get lost. People speak English but it’s possible that not all of them will understand what you ask. Burundi holds the Lake Tanganyika, a lake with history and the one that can cool you off in the hot sunny days. The Lake Tanganyika is one of the major tourist attractions in the African country.

Not many people dare to visit Burundi and because of that this African country located in the heart of the continent has untouched scenery by the hand of men. The landscapes and evergreen forests along with the amazing mountaintops make this country a heaven on earth. Because the country had harsh periods when people fought among each other to declare their supremacy, many dangers can put one’s life at risk.
