Knowledge base

Burundi competed in the Olympic Games for the first time at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, United States. The nation won its first Olympic gold medal in this debut appearance at the Games. (Wikipedia)

Living among the lush green landscapes are the ninety percent of smallscale farmers who grow banana, cassava, sweet potato,  as well as coffee and tea. Coffee farmers dwelling in the Burundi mountains manage their plantations with a country pride. Showcasing characteristics typical for African coffee, Burundi coffee boasts a clean delicate flavor, rich body, and bright acidity. The Coffee from Burundi can show some wild and fruity notes. They have a sweet berry taste, floral notes, hints of citrus, blueberry, or even pineapple.

One of the smallest countries in Africa, Burundi's land is used mostly for subsistence agricultural and grazing, which has led to deforestation, soil erosion and habitat loss. As of 2005 the country was almost completely deforested, with less than 6% of its land covered by trees and over half of that being commercial plantations

Beauty of Burundi

You can admire Lake Tanganyika’s beauty from the extraordinary beaches on its shores that stretches from the capital city Bujumbura all the way to Nyanza Lac in southern Burundi, closer to Tanzania. Don’t be surprised if you catch a glimpse of a hippopotamus coming out of the water to rest alongside tourists on the beach. Lake Tanganyika  also hosts a variety of fish that don’t exist elsewhere such as Sangala (known as captain), Mukeke and Ndagala that are not available in any other place in the world except in Burundi.
