Rusizi National Park, Bujumbura

#1 of 12 in Things to do in Burundi
Track down hippos and sitatungas (swamp antelopes) in their natural habitat on a trip through Rusizi National Park. With luck, you'll also see flamingos strolling in the shallow ends of the river that runs through the park. Keep your eye out for the notorious Gustave, a crocodile believed to have killed hundreds of people in his lifetime. He rarely makes an appearance, but those sightings are once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Bujumbura holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Rusizi National Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
