    Default Mana Pools to Cape McClear

    Wondering which route to take:
    Mana-Lusaka-Chipata-Cape McClear (stopping to overnight en route)
    OR
    Mana-Harare-Dedza-Cape McClear (stopping overnight en route)
    To consider: vehicle entry fees, road quality, scenic route, etc...

    Please tell me what you think.
    Thanks!

    Thanks Henri!

    Do you think we can make it from Harare to Dedza in an easy days drive?

    T4 Maps say it is a 11hr trip. You will be buggered at the end of the day.

    I guess we could do Mana to Harare and then on to Tete in Moz in about 8-9 hours.
    Overnight it there and then drive to Cape McClear in about 5-6 hours.
    Was trying to avoid staying in Tete. Any ideas of a stopover between Harare and Tete?
    Thanks.
