    Burundi is found just south of RwandaTanzania on the eastern side and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west. The mighty Lake Tanganyika is found bordering the southwest of the country. The eastern flank of the East African Rift, also known as the Great Rift Valley, borders the country. Because the country is so underdeveloped, it is said that it offers great wilderness and wildlife experiences. The capital recently changed Bujumbura to Gitega. Bujumbura International Airport is the only airport with a tarred runway and also has car rental facilities available. Burundi’s transport network is very underdeveloped. Bicycles are a popular mode of transport in the country.
