Travel Tips from people who've been to Burundi
Try the Belvedere Restaurant: excelent French cuisine and a great view of the lake.
In my opinion, the Bujumbura central market is the best place in the world to shop for clothes. Wear your purse so that you can hold it in front of you all the time. Keep an eye on your money but show a friendly face and you will have a blast! I shopped there 2-3 times a week for 6 months and never had anyone try to snatch my purse.
Some of the roads are seriously risky, especially the drop into Bujumbura down the side of the rift valley... if using a 'special' taxi, tell the driver to go slow & safe, of he doesn't get paid... maybe offer an incentive bonus if you thought his driving is good.
