Burundi Rivers form an important part of the geographical features of the landlocked country. The rivers of Burundi serve as natural boundaries dividing Burundi geography from other neighboring countries.
The major Burundi rivers are Ruzizi, Rurubu, Kagera, Muragarazi, Kanyaru, etc.

The rivers of Burundi flow into the river basins of two major Africa rivers, the Nile and the Zaire. The Kagera river and the Ruvubu river form the sources of the Nile, flowing from the southeastern region. Ruzizi river is one of the Burundi rivers flowing into the Zaire river basin.
