Five Minutes with Augustine of Burundi Access

Augustine is the brains behind Burundi Access, a website which provides information on Burundi for tourism purposes.

www.infoafricanow.com: What are the five major tourism attractions in Burundi?

Augustine: Kirundo Birds Lake, Karera Falls, Nile Source Monument, Pierre Livingstone Monument and Rusizi National Park

www.infoafricanow.com: What are the five least unknown attractions in Burundi?

Augustine: Lake Dogodogo spring waters, Teza tea plantations, Bukeye Royal tombs, Kigwena Chimpanzees and Cibitoke World war German tombs

www.infoafricanow.com: As a Tour Operator in Burundi, what advice would you give those planning to visit Burundi in future?

Augustine: Travellers to Burundi should rely on some travel agencies or tours
operators information. I say this because, it is not easy to find great travel news on Burundi tourism even through the national tourism office.



www.infoafricanow.com: How has can Burundi make use of the Internet to attract more
tourists?

Augustine: Burundians don't believe Internet can help them attract tourists to
Burundi ,that's the reason I decided to build my website where I can
publish what we can offer in Burundi in terms of travel services ,hotel
,car rental ,travel agents , and other services people can search from
internet .

People build a website but once they are finished, few try to promote
their company through internet. They believe building a website is enough .
I wrote an article about this http://burundiaccess.com/ba.php?article50



www.infoafricanow.com: How has the Government of Burundi supported the tourism sector?

Augustine: I can say Burundi Government has not yet thought about the power or importance of the tourism sector in the country development.
Government officials have for a long time considered tourism sector as unproductive sector .
