    Also interested in this info. T4A suggests 262km in 3 hours 16 minutes without stoppages and border clearance time.

    Last time I did it was some time ago, and it took around 4 hours. The main issue is how long it takes to get through Tete and how backed up the traffic is across the Zambezi bridge there. At one stage, repairs to the bridge meant that the queues were up to two or three hours, but I think that construction is over now.

    Default Mwanza -> Nyamapanda

    Eish, it took us 4 hours....we stopped for a 1.5hrs lunch (not included in the 4hrs) there is a magnificent boabab forest just before the Nyamapanda boarder post (well may not be just that close...but look out for it and spend 20 min taking photos...awesome)....the route is fine just many trucks esp since tete is booming. We were on this route 4 weeks ago - enjoy

    Oct 2014 we did the route Nyampanda/Mwanza/Nyampanda. Our moving average was 73km per hour. Nyampanda border is very slow on both sides (Moz/Zim). Scammers looking for bogus SAP vehicle clearance certificates. Mwanza border quicker. Vehicle insurance at Mwanza costs MWK7,500. Do not pay more than that. That is the official rate from Prime Insurance. Scammers try to extort MWK17500 per vehicle. Put aside at least 2 hours per border In and Out.
