See wildlife and traditional houses at Musee Vivant, a small zoo within a vast park. Compare different species of crocodiles from Lake Tanganyika and the Rusizi River, and visit enclosures with a leopard, a chimpanzee, and antelopes. Terraria house banana green snakes, gaboon vipers, cobras, boomslangs, and pythons, while rare fish from Tanganyika swim in the aquarium. You'll have the chance to pet a crocodile or hold a snake. The museum's cultural component involves a thatched hut displaying a collection of traditional tools from a Burundi village, as well as photographs of past royalty.
