Hi Mike!

In october I will be travelling in Mozambique and would like to cross the border to Zambia at the Chimefusa border. Do you have any idea about the public transport from Tete to the border? At the Zambian site a friend is able to pick us up from Katete. Thanks!!

Kind regards,

Marrigje

Hi there and I apologize for the slow reply

I have asked friends who live in Tete to help and I am still waiting for their reply.

Sorry for the delay, but if you get to the "cruzamento Zambia" or the turn off to Zambia on the main road through Matema North of the old bridge over the Zambezi at 0500, transport departs from there when full.

Hi again Marrigje

I finally got a reply from Tete. Coaster type buses (25 seaters) and smaller mini-buses (called chapas) as well as trucks depart from the junction of the EN103 (Malawi road) and the EN221 (Zambia road) in Matundo on the north side of the old bridge across the Zambezi. Here is the location: goo.gl/maps/btzT4FkJrKB2

Enjoy your travels

Mike

Dear Mike,

We (two adults and two teenagers) will be going to Tete in July. From Tete we would like to go to South Luanga in Zambia. So we should like to find transport from Tete to Katete.

I notice your reply below and if that is still valid, I would like to ask if you know more about the frequency on the busses and if there is a way to "reserve" a seat. Or is the only way to show up at 0500 and hope for a departure that day and hope for a seat?

The busses you are referring to below, how far are they going exactly?

We will probably not make it to South Luanga in one day. Where would you recommend to overnight? It would be nice if we could get at least to the Zambian side on day 1.

Alternatively, I am considering to hire a local driver in Tete to take us to the border. Would you know anyone who is offering that service and would you have any idea of price level.

All this assuming that there are no major problems in Tete in July after the cyclone.

Thanks in advance

Henrik
