The Kingdom of Burundi or Urundi in the Great Lakes region was a polity ruled by a traditional monarch with several princes beneath him, succession struggles were common.
The king, known as the mwami (translated as ruler) headed a princely aristocracy (ganwa) which owned most of the land and required a tribute, or tax, from local farmers (mainly Hutu) and herders (mainly Tutsi).
There are two national parks, Kibira National Park to the northwest (a small region of rain forest, adjacent to Nyungwe Forest National Park in Rwanda), and Ruvubu National Park to the northeast (along the Rurubu River, also known as Ruvubu or Ruvuvu).
Both were established in 1982 to conserve wildlife populations.
The official languages of Burundi are French and Kirundi, although Swahili can be found spoken along the Tanzanian border.
Over the following centuries it expanded, annexing smaller neighbours.
The southwestern border is adjacent to Lake Tanganyika.
