Burundi

Landlocked but with great lakes.

Burundi is a country located in the Great Rift Valley of East Africa. It is bordered by Rwanda to the north, Tanzania to the east and south, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west. Burundi is one of the smallest countries in Africa and the official languages are French and Kirundi.

The capital, Bujumbura, is located on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, the world's deepest lake. Other interesting places to visit include the Ruvubu National Park, home to many rare and endangered species of animals, and the Kibira National Park, which is one of the largest remaining tracts of montane forest in Africa.

Burundi is one of the world's poorest countries. Its economy is largely agricultural, with coffee and tea being the main export crops.

The cuisine of Burundi is similar to that of other countries in the region. The most common dish is called ugali, which is a type of cornmeal porridge. Other popular dishes include beans, rice, and plantains.
