Hello People,

Has anyone traveled from Lilongwe to Mbeya by bus and if yes. Which bus would you recommend?

And what are the costs?

I took the Taqwa bus from Lilongwe all the way to Dar Es Salaam. It left around 7pm and got to the border before it opened in the morning. The Lilongwe-Mbeya segment of the trip wasn't too bad, but I don't recommend taking it all the way to Dar! I think it was around MK50,000 to Dar, so Mbeya might be about half that. You should get tickets earlier in the day because it does sell out. It also doesn't always leave on the day it's scheduled, so call ahead if you're on a tight schedule. I'm not sure if it's still valid, but the number we called was +265 999 33 45 38
