"Minibus to Cape Maclear" Lilongwe Transportation Tip by georeiser
Lilongwe Transportation: 6 reviews and 13 photos
Lilongwe bus station is packed with minibuses of all categories, and the minibuses are packed with people.
I traveled by minibus from Lilongwe to Mangochi on the way to Cape Maclear. Unfortunately I picked a minibus which took the old road south to Balaka and Liwonde before it turned north towards Mangochi. The trip took almost 7 hours in a Toyota Hiace with 22 passengers. In addition I had to change bus from Mangochi to Monkey Bay. Make sure to ask the driver before you get into the bus. You must take the new road to Monkey Bay along the southern tip of Lake Malawi, and NOT to Mangochi. It will reduce your travel time with 3 hours.
I paid 1500 MKW for the trip from Lilongwe to Mangochi. 250 MKW from Mangochi to Monkey Bay. And 1500 MKW from Monkey Bay to Cape Maclear in the private pickup.
