Malawi to Mozambique

Hi - we are currently in Zomba and planning to head over the border to Mozambique next. We’d quite like to get the Cuamba to Nampula train but are unsure which border crossing we can/should use.

I read that there is a train from Blantyre to Nayuchi, where you can then disembark to cross the border and that on the other side you can get a train to Nampula. Does anyone have any experience of this or know if it is possible?

Alternatively we will take a minibus to chiponde to cross the border and then find transport to Cuamba to get the train. I think the train only runs once per week but I can’t finc any timetables online. Any advice or thoughts much appreciated.

We need to be able to get a visa on arrival wherever we cross the border.

I wouldnt bank on any other trains, once you cross the border you will be able to get road transport to Cuamba.
