    Default Fastest/shortest route to Chipata S Luangwa

    It appears the shortest route from Pretoria to Chipata is via Beit Bridge, Harare, Tete and from there up north to Cassacatiza border post to Zambia, Katete (links with T4) and Chipata, but is it the fastest??
    What are the conditions from Tete to Cassacatiza? T4A shows it is tar but we know what tar roads could look like in Africa!
    Has any one travelled that section recently?
    My time is limited and I want to spend as little time as possible getting there and back. My 2.2 Hilux will not break the speed barrier either!

    Too many border crossings. Take the direct route, either Zim, Zambia, or Botswana, Zambia. Cut out Mozambique.

    Willie, I just came through Beit bridge a week ago on my way back up to Solwezi - My suggestion would be give Beit Bridge a big skip! and Travel through Botswana- Kasane/kasungula, Livingstone, Lusaka and to Chipata via the great East road.
