Learn What It's Like to Live in Bujumbura

Bujumbura, Burundi's capital and main port, is a lively little city where Europe and Africa unite. The influence of Belgian colonizers can be seen everywhere, from the city's regal architecture to its fine dining establishments. European culture is also fostered through the French Institute, which hosts regular events such as film showings, exhibitions, and food fairs. Expats will love Bujumbura's bustling Central Market, picturesque parks, and golden sand beaches. And for sports lovers, there are plenty of basketball courts, tennis courts, and swimming pools, as well as the Prince Louis Rwagasore Stadium. So whether you're a keen footballer or a foodie, Bujumbura is sure to impress.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities across the globe.
