Bora Bora is known as a hotspot among expats and young Burundians. As such, it is often too crowded, especially weekends. During the week it's much quieter. They've got great seating overlooking the pool and the beach, and another cool bar area down on the beach. Pizzas are pretty good. Prices in general are a bit too high for the... More

The pizza here is great. Mozzarella wasn't available, forcing me to go with Goma. I was concerned it would be mediocre in the absence of mozzarella, but it was still great. The meat toppings are especially good, which are often the problem with African pizzas. Bora Bora's toppings and pizzas approach Western-good. Like all delicious versions of Western food, it...

Though it's there for many years already it's still one of the coolest beach side locations in the city. A bit expensive but the quality of food, drinks and amenities is good.

I don't think I've been this surprised about a place in quite a while! You simply don't expect this type of 'beach resort' when traveling in the middle of Africa. A great beach vibe, good music and awesome food! We ate Mukeke, which is the local fish, which was REALLY nice!!!

If you are looking to meet expats from around the world and enjoy a party atmosphere this may be your place to see and be seen. The place was crowded on a Monday afternoon with loud hip hop music blaring on the speakers, too loud to have decent conversation between 6 people. The food choices were uninspiring albeit decent prices... More

Bora bora is THE beach bar/restaurant of Bujumbura. There is a small infinity pool on the lake. There is also a DJ playing music until late at night, you can also play beach volley. Great for having drinks with friends or without. It gets very busy on weekends.

A little oasis in Bujumbura on the Congo road. Illuminated swimming pool, beachside location, good food and great ambience. Highly recommend a visit if you are in Bujumbura
