Not only is it a huge lake but it is the worlds second deepest lake and it is also the worlds second largest freshwater lake!
We went walking past here to particularly look for hippos that apparently are more likely to see in this area than anywhere else around the lake - we hadnt seen them when we had our first visit to Lake Tanganyika at the Beach Club Tanganyika - and we didnt see them whee we had been we had more chance - but we didnt see them! - nor did we see any crocodiles that are also meant to be possible to see - though they apparently are more likely to see around nightfall.
- Pros:the most hospitable, kind, warm, generous, colourful, people! Gradual recoveries and restoration since the genocidal massacres 15 or so years ago
- Cons:many security people, police and military around with big guns! can be daunting but Im told by many that during the day walking about is perfectly safe - just take care at night - go by taxi or travel with locals...and a horrible history
We were in Burundi on a mission trip instigated by a woman from Burundi in our church....and invited by the churches... more travel advice
We went on a missions trip to Burundi with a host church to go to - we were totally wonderfully looked after, kept safe... more travel advice
