KEEN FOR A QUI­ETER BOR­DER POST?

go! - - Africa Classic Road Trip -

There are only two land bor­der posts be­tween Zam­bia and Tan­za­nia: Tun­duma and Kas­esya. Tun­duma is very busy be­cause it car­ries plenty of truck traf­fic from the har­bour in Dar es Salaam to Lusaka. If that sounds like bad news to you, head north from Kapishya to Mpu­lungu on Lake Tan­ganyika. Spend a cou­ple of nights there, then drive to Kas­esya, which is tiny and far less busy. The road from Mbala to Kas­esya is poor, but it’s much bet­ter on the Tan­za­nian side and it soon be­comes tar as you ap­proach Sum­bawanga. From Sum­bawanga, turn south un­til you re­join the main tar road to Dar es Salaam. An­other op­tion from Sum­bawanga is to head north and drive this part of our route the other way around.
