  • The location offers a good view over the city. However, if you're interested getting closer to the monument to take a picture you'll be asked for money.  more »
  • With my guide we walked a bit before getting our pass (to be paid to the Member at the entrance) to this monument whose location offers a panoramic view of the city of Bujumbura. This monument symbolizes the reconciliation after decades of hostility. 05/02/1992 date corresponds to the date of the signing of the Pact for national unity.

  • Gives you a very lovely view of Bujumbura and Lk. Tanganyika.
  • Basically I love this place but this year though I felt in love with this monument back in February when we were celebrating "We4Unity". The event was so unique, fantastic and memorable. Abataje you can check pictures on Instagram ( on Akeza Net Account). Can't wait for the next event in 2020
