Another Border: Mozambique to Malawi Three days of relaxation in Cahora Bassa left us ill-prepared for the drive to Blantyre. Much of the route from Cahora Bassa to the Malawi border is one of Mozambique’s major arterial roads. This is…

Het best bewaarde geheim van Afrika is ontdekt. Mozambique, wat een paradijs! We leven al een tijdje middenin een ansichtkaart. Eerst Chidenguele, toen Barra en Tofo en tot slot Vilanculos. Picture this: na een heerlijke stranddag met een onwaarschijnlijk blauwe…

Van Mozambique naar Tanzanië rijden blijkt geen eenvoudige onderneming te zijn. Twee keuzes: ofwel rijden we langs de kust via de directe route, wat aantrekkelijk kort is en mooi, ofwel rijden we 600km om via de Unity Bridge, een misbaksel…
