    Default Arusha - Mbeya via B141

    Good day, soon I'll drive Arusha - Mbeya and want to avoid Dodoma route, so would make it via Babati - Itigi - Rungwa - Mbeya. Is this road tar all the way ? Any updates about road conditions will be highly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

    I understand there is new tar from Babati to Singida - and maybe to Itigi. BUT the rest of the route from Itigi - Rungwa - Mbeya is a remote dirt road. See Stan Weakley's blog on www.slowdonkey.com when they drove from Katavi to Mbeya via Ipole and Rungwa. It was as two day drive from Katavi to Mbeya.

    If you want tar, I would advise either via Dodoma or via Morogoro.
