  Any 4wd for the last section to my place ?
by Norali

To go to Malaza, any car would fit in dry season. Even potholes in the last section to my home should be dry, then no mud. Your chance to be stuck in them is close to none.

When it comes to Malaza in summer, only 4wd and motorbike would fit for this last section. One minute would be enough to ride this section if there wasn't any pothole. Now, for a 5-10 minute ride (out of a total of 1.5 hour-ride if you drive from Tana), would you really hire a 4wd ? OK, then stick to your car but be sure to leave your car on Malaza main place.

Anyways, I use to think your best bet would be a motorbike.

From Tana, it's only after some 15km, from Lazaina village that you'll have to take the dirty roads. Projects to improve the road conditions had been numerous during the many decades but it'sonly now that you see some of the results. As a matter of fact, a section in Lazaina village that uses to be dirty roads is now cobblestoned.. bit by bit, the effots would reach Malaza ... some day. For he moment, we make do with this.. and we are skilled in that :-)
