Burundi is a small nation bordering Rwanda, Tanzania, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Many beautiful forests, lakes, reserves, and mountains exist within its borders. The large number of different animals not found outside Africa is the reason why tourists visit the country. Going on safari is a popular tourist activity in Burundi. Fertile soil also makes the nation an ideal place for farming.
Most of the population makes a living from agriculture. Burundi has a high number of people within its landmass which creates some environmental and social problems. The country's economy is still developing and has relied heavily on foreign aid until recently.
