Getting Around Burundi
There are no scheduled internal flights.
There are main roads east from Bujumbura to Muramvya (once the royal city of Burundi) and south to Gitega. Both journeys can be completed without too much strain during the dry season, but any road travel can be difficult in the rainy season. Avoid travelling by road outside Bujumbura after dark.

Car hire is available from local companies.
Tanus-tanus (truck taxis) are usually available but they are often crowded.
You can drive on a valid national driving licence for up to six months.
