Article 3 of the Constitution of the Republic of Burundi, 18 March 2005, describes the various subdivisions of the country as follows:

"Le Burundi est subdivisé en provinces, communes, zones et collines, et toutes autres subdivisions prévues par la loi. Leurs organisation et fonctionnement sont fixés par la loi. Elle peut en modifier les limites et le nombre."

Translation: Burundi is divided in provinces, communes, zones and collines (literally: hills) and all other subdivisions provided for by law. Their organization and structure are enshrined by law. Their boundaries and number can be changed.

Beyond provinces, communes and collines, no other administrative subdivisions seem to be in use in Burundi today, including zones. This information needs to be verified.
