Early settlement

Archaeological evidence shows that a pygmoid hunter gathering tribe, the Twa, first settled the region in 70,000 B.C.E.However, approximately 5,000 years ago, the Hutu, a Bantu-speaking people from the mountainous regions of central Africa, immigrated and provided Burundi’s first language.

The Hutu served as the main farming group in the country. Following the Hutu, the Tutsi tribe settled the region in the late fifteenth century. The Tutsi were descendants of Nilo-Hamitic-speaking people from Ethiopia.From the Tutsi’s early occupation in the region, agricultural techniques were introduced, and a feudal system was established within local chiefdoms. The Tutsi’s relationship with the Hutu remained stable during this period.With the settlement of the Tutsi and Hutu tribes, Burundi’s kingdom expanded in land size, until the seventeenth century. At the beginning of the seventeenth century, the Tutsi dynasty reigned Burundi’s kingdom.The kingdom continued through rulers, until the late nineteenth century. King Mwezi IV reigned from 1852 to 1908. During this time he allied with the Germans in order to gain control over his opponents. Mwezi’s opponents, two chiefs named Maconco and Birori, were rebelling to take away Burundi’s throne. As a result, the kingdom of Burundi became a German colony in 1899.

Saga Beach

Although it’s got nothing on nearby Kenya and Tanzania, Burundi’s beaches along the coast of Lake Tanganyika are surprisingly attractive. The sand is white and powdery, and the waves should keep the Bilharzia at bay. Saga Beach, which is the most developed stretch of sand along the lake, lies about 5km (3mi) northwest of the capital.

Although it used to be known as Plage des Cocotiers (Coconut Beach), most locals now refer to the area as Saga Beach (pronounced Sagga) in honour of the Saga Beach Resort. This popular complex has several large restaurants and a brilliant beachfront bar that turns out cold Primus beers at bargain prices. It draws in huge crowds on the weekends, and the whole complex rocks on as a club by night.

When to Go

If you want to avoid getting wet, the rainy season in Burundi lasts from around October to May, with a brief dry spell in December and January. If you like getting sweaty, head to the hot and steamy lowlands around Lake Tanganyika, where temperatures average 30°C (86°F), or stay cool in the more mountainous north, where the usual temperature is a much milder 20°C (68°F).
