    • Safety in Burundi

      Burundi Dec 22, 2014 at 8:25 AM


      I will be in Rwanda in Feb and was considering a side-trip to visit Bujumbura for a few days.

      Is it safe to swim in Tanganyika, or crocodiles will eat me up?
      I saw Burundian only in swimming pools, I was told because of crocs and hippos
      everyone goes to swimming pools. I would much rather, swim in the lake.
      Anybody knows?

    • some specific questions about Bujumbura

      Burundi Aug 6, 2009 at 12:31 PM

      I'm a student in Brussels and normally i'm leaving for Bujumbura end of september 2009. I'm going (on my own without support) to study there at a private university for 10-13 months.

      because it's not easy to find info about bujumbura I thought I better tried my luck here. I allready know it's not the safest place on earth but that will probebly not make it less of an experience for me.

      - because I'm just a normal student staying at a (expensive) hotel is not really an option, is there annybody who might have an idea if it's possible to find somewhere to stay for max 200 euro/270 dollar per month which has at least a bathroom and safety?

      - should I be extremely carefull with malaria and take medication the whole trip(this is VERY expensive) or would it be ok to do this just the first months and afterwards just be carefull and use a mosquitonet?

      If there is someone who can help me out it would be a great help.
