Burundi is a small mountainous country with a long history of tribal wars. The majority of the population are Hutus, while Tutsis, originally from Ethiopia and Uganda, and the original inhabitants Twa Pygmies form minorities. During colonial times the country came under the control of Belgium.

The "Chutes de la Kagera" waterfalls are very spectacular in the wet season. Kibabi Hot Springs are located near Kilemba. Burundi boarders at the famous Lake Tanganyika. Tutsi people are huge! Surce du Nil is the southernmost source of the River Nile. Bujumbura is the largest urban center of the country. The city has industries like textiles, leather, paper, chemicals and agricultural products. The two most important centers of culture are the University of Burundi and Center of Burundi Civilization.


Kidumu is Burundi's most famous singer. He lives in Kenya and is renowned for his songs of peace.

Civil war, pitting the Tutsi-dominated army and government against Hutu guerrilla movements, has raged in Burundi since 1993, killing at least 200,000 people.
