Health & safety
Burundi’s long civil war appears to be coming to an end. However, it is a young peace and things could kick off again, so don’t do too much exploring unless you are 101% certain things are safe. It’s currently considered safe to travel by land to and from Rwanda. Travelling south along the shores of Lake Tanganyika to Tanzania may emerge as a popular way to link the mountain gorillas of Rwanda with the chimps of Gombe Stream.
