Because of its history, Bujumbura reflects a colonial charm which shows through in its buildings, wide boulevards, and carefree way of life.

Spend the 7th (Thu) exploring nature at Rusizi National Park. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Reptile Park (Parc des Reptiles), make a trip to Mausolee du Prince Louis Rwagasore, and pause for some photo ops at Livingstone-Stanley Monument.
