Burundi, formally the Republic of Burundi is a landlocked nation in the Great Lakes district of Eastern Africa, flanked by Rwanda to the north, Tanzania to the east and south and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west. Its capital is Bujumbura. In spite of the fact that the nation is landlocked, a great part of the southwestern fringe is nearby Lake Tanganyika.

The Twa, Tutsi and Hutu individuals have existed in Burundi for no less than five hundred years and, for over two hundred years, Burundi was managed as a kingdom. At the starting of the twentieth century, then again, Germany and Belgium possessed the area and Burundi and Rwanda came to be an European province regarded as Ruanda-Urundi. Social contrasts between the Tutsi and Hutu have since donated to political unrest in the locale, accelerating common war in the midst of the twentieth century. In a matter of seconds, Burundi is administered as a presidential agent law based republic.

The origin of the Nile River is in Burundi area, and is connected from Lake Victoria to its headwaters by means of the Ruvyironza River. Lake Victoria is moreover an essential water origin, which serves as a fork to the Kagera River. Another major bay is Lake Tanganyika, spotted in much of Burundi's southwestern corner.

Burundi's territories are generally rural or pasture. Settlement by rustic inhabitant totals has prompted deforestation, soil disintegration and environment loss. Deforestation of the whole nation is well-nigh fully because of overpopulation, with a negligible 230 square miles (600 km2) remaining and a progressing misfortune of about 9% for every annum. There are two national parks, Kibira National Park to the northwest (a modest district of drizzle woodland, contiguous Nyungwe Forest National Park in Rwanda), Ruvubu National Park to the northeast (along the Rurubu River, otherwise called Ruvubu or Ruvuvu). Both were built in 1982 to save natural life populations.

Most Burundians exist in rustic territories, while 11% of the inhabitant total existed in urban ranges in 2010. The residents thickness of around 315 individuals for every square kilometer (753 for every sq mi) is the second most astounding in Sub-Saharan Africa. Roughly 85% of the residents are of Hutu ethnic inception, 15% are Tutsi, and fewer than 1% are indigenous Twa/Pygmies. Burundi has the fifth most noteworthy sum ripeness rate in the planet, at 6.08 kids born/woman (2012 estimates).

Literacy around mature person ladies in Burundi has expanded by 17% since 2002. Burundi's proficiency rate is level because of flat school participation and on account of ability in Kirundi just gives access to materials printed in that dialect. Ten percent of Burundian young men are permitted an optional education.

Burundi has the University of Burundi. There are some storehouses in the urban areas, for example the Burundi Geological Museum in Bujumbura and the Burundi National Museum and the Burundi Museum of Life in Gitega.
