Hi Mike, I'm heading up to Malawi this week and wondering about the safety on the road from Nyamapanda to Malawi via Tete? I'll be travelling alone and have done this route 2 years ago but with rebel activity in the Tete area I'm not too sure if this route would be recommended?
No problems currently on this route. Watch out for heavy trucks and buses driving erratically. Can be a few speed traps either side of towns and villages so be prepared to slow down below 60kph frequently. Should take 4-5 hrs Nyamapanda to Zobue/Mwanza.
