Bujumbura, Lake Tanganika Region, Burundi
Surprisingly enough, the place is safe, so don't worry about walking about in the centre, despite the absence of other Caucasian travellers. Beware however by the lake, especially in the areas near town, as there may be thieves around.

Bujumbura, Lake Tanganika Region, Burundi
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.

Bujumbura, Lake Tanganika Region, Burundi
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.

Bujumbura, Burundi
On Saga beach, there is a caged baby gorilla and a chimpanzee that seems to be ill. So those of us who don't manage to do gorilla tracking in Rwanda, Congo or Uganda, or navigate the difficult forests in these countries to see the chimpanzees, here's a way to see them. But be aware that it is rather distressing to see these animals caged and suffering in this way. As if this was not enough, local children often come around and poke these souls with sticks, throw stuff at them, and generally torment them. It is another matter that the baby gorilla often outsmarts them - snatching their stick from them or turning its ass on them - but the scene is generally cruel. It is another cruel irony, of course, that the children who torment the gorilla are often themselves tormented - impoverished, hungry and tattered. When I wanted to feed the gorilla with a banana, I couldn't help noticing that the children there too were eyeing the banana as hungrily as the gorilla. It is a sad irony, the way our world is.
