Tourism infrastructure is very poor in Burundi. The options for transport and accommodation for tourists are limited. *Bujumbura, the largest city and former capital of Burundi, is a major tourist attraction of the country. Visitors should exercise caution, avoid travelling after dark, and be aware of curfew laws. Many roads close at night, and most embassies put out curfews on their staff.
Road and water transport are the main ways for getting around. There are no railways in the country, and the airport in Bujumbura is the only one with scheduled flights (all international).
Yellow fever vaccination is necessary before visiting Burundi. Malaria is endemic in Burundi, while vaccination for cholera may also be required when visiting Burundi.
