    SUBSCRIBER CONTENT: Squiz the World goes to... Burundi

    Today we're visiting Burundi, a landlocked country in the "Great Lakes" region of East Africa. Burundi is one of the most densely populated—meaning a lot of people per square kilometre—countries in Africa, and the poorest country in the world. Don't worry, there are still plenty of interesting and beautiful things to learn about!
