hi i arrive in malawi from zambia tomorrow and am wondering if anyone knows any bus companies that run malawi to jo'berg. If possible with hoping on and off through mozambique but if not any help would be grateful. Alternatively any cheap airlines flying this way?
Hi, only airlines Malawi to Joburgh are Air Malawi and SA Airways, both fly from Lilongwe and Blantyre.
There are buses to Joburgh from Lilongwe via Blantyre. Company called Malasha run a service, there may be others, there are a lot of Malawians working in SA so there is always a steady stream of people back and forth. You will need to make enquiries from the bus stations in Lilongwe or Blantyre, as there are no web sites. Bus services in Malawi run on African timetables. The buses run thro Moz, so I believe you will need a Moz visa (or transit visa if passing thro.)that you will need to get at the Moz emmbassy in Lilongwe, takes 2-3 days.
