Interbank, Ecobank, Kenya Commercial Bank, and a few more financial institutions provide ATMs in Bujumbura that take foreign Master cards and Visa cards. nonetheless, Interbank charges 5000 FBu every transaction. Bear in mind that the Gar du Nord bus station has just one ATM, which is sometimes unavailable, so plan accordingly.

Groceries

The majority of necessities may be obtained at one of the Central Market’s booths. Strenuous haggling is required to get it at the best possible price.

Small supermarkets are scattered across town. They often stock luxury goods at a premium price.

Dimitri is the town’s main supermarket, located at the little roundabout of Chaussee Prince Louis Rwagazore and Avenue du Congo. Expect nothing too extravagant, although Dimitri does have shopping carts!

On Avenue du Congo, the Greek-owned ‘Boucherie Nouvelle’ is worth a visit. Always bustling, yet with a diverse selection of meat, cheese, and charcuterie. Opposite the butcher are merchants selling exceptional and unusual veggies, as well as wild mushrooms of all varieties during the wet season. Prepare for considerable inconvenience and ‘persuasive’ sales practices.

Souvenirs

The modest curio store on Avenue de Stade is the finest spot to purchase mementos.

Another tiny oddity market is located on Chaussee Prince Louis Rwagazore, just across from the St. Paul Library.
