Learn about Expat Life in Burundi

Burundi, nestling between the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, and Rwanda, is a stunning region of natural beauty, where Lake Tanganyika, Africa's deepest lake, lies between breathtaking rock formations, waterfalls, and hot springs. Water skiing, sailing, and fishing are welcome on the lake, while Kajaga Beach is a popular destination. Burundi has plenty of restaurants, particularly in its capital, Bujumbura. Other activities include tennis, golf, bowling, horse riding, and a flying club. Its economy is mainly agricultural, the primary exports being coffee and tea, while the end of the civil war and a period of stability have improved Burundi's economic activity. There are several English-speaking schools and following Burundi's independence, the World Health Organization has been instrumental in improving public health services.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities around the world.
