But those who do venture to this incredible part of the continent can be rewarded with natural beauty and a buzzing cultural scene. The low level of tourists is one of the factors which make the country such a magical place to visit, allowing the smaller number who do to really immerse themselves in the incredible natural sites from the Serengeti to the Victoria Falls, Rusizi National Park and Lake Tanganyika.
