Tailor Made Adventure Holidays and Group Tours in Burundi

Burundi is just about as far off the tourist trail in East Africa as you can get, and that’s why we love it. Overshadowed by better known neighbours, Burundi receives a fraction of their visitors but those who come are consistently amazed by its natural beauty and vibrant local culture. Our group tours and tailor made holidays to Burundi are designed to get you under the skin of a long neglected corner of the continent, meeting local people and learning about a truly authentic slice of Africa, untainted by mass tourism. Burundi’s natural wealth may not have the wow factor of iconic sites such as the Serengeti and Victoria Falls, but simply oozes adventure – the fact that there are usually no other western travelers for miles around just enhances this. With the beautiful wetlands that encompass Rusizi National Park, and the mighty Lake Tanganyika, Burundi punches well above its weight for such a tiny land. Combine this with thriving local industries and the cultural tour de force that are the Burundian royal drummers, and there’s simply no excuse not to visit. Join us on a journey into an undiscovered highlight of Africa.
