Burundi Country Information

Burundi was settled by Hutu farmers, in the early 14th century, who imposed their language and customs on the Twa.

Migrating Tutsis established themselves as feudal rulers over the Hutu in the 15th century, as they did in neighbouring Rwanda.

Germany occupied Burundi, then called Urundi, in the 1880s; along with Ruanda.

Belgium were given a mandate over the Territory of Ruanda-Urundi after World War I, but did little to inject political stability into the region.


Burundi became an independent constitutional monarchy on July 1st, 1962, but the reign of the Mwami lasted less than four more years.


Although Burundi has no coastline as such, the south-west of the country, including the capital Bujumbura, does have access to Lake Tanganyika; the second deepest freshwater lake in the world.

Where to Stay in Bujumbura

Hotel Club du Lac Tanganyika

Hotel Club du Lac Tanganyika: Chaussee d'Uvira, Bujumbura, Burundi.

Set within a luxuriant park of five hectares, behind a wide beach, on the north side of Lake Tanganyika, the hotel was visited by Princess Caroline of Monaco in 2007.

Guests at the Hotel Club du Lac Tanganyika loved the beach, the stunning pool and the largest hotel establishment in Burundi's great location.
