Mzuzu Landscape

Pierre Chiwona

This is a quiet and attractive city in the Northern Region, situated on a 1000m high plain, about 370km north of Lilongwe. It has recently experienced some commercial development with the return of the Asian businessmen and a new University has just been opened. Mzuzu is a small city without many amenities. The city has an airport 10km to the north which operates flights to and from Lilongwe, Blantyre and Karonga. There is a variety of accomodation including an international standard hotel.

Nearby tourist attractions include Waterberg plateau park to the north, a cool 3000m high plateau with good game viewing, horse riding, hiking and superb views. To the northwest is Vwaza Marsh Game Reserve, a well established safari camp as is the case with Nyika. The roads to both camps can be poor, particularly in the rainy season, but Nyika is served by Air Malawi flying from Mzuzu airport, twice a week. Also to the north is the historic Livingstonia Mission and to the southeast there is Nkhata Bay on the shores of Lake Malawi where lake steamers can be boarded and where there is scuba diving and beach accomodation.
