What business can you do in Malawi?


The traffic between Harare and Blantyre is increasing everyday, 5 years ago there was only bus plying the Harare-Blantyre route but the number of buses has increased to 3. The buses are Kynergy, TripTrans and ZUPCO. They leave Harare at 6:00am daily and arrive in Blantyre between 6:00pm and 7:00pm.

Cost of Transport: Buses cost US$25 or $30 Bond, all in hard cash form. If you choose to fly, there are daily flights for the route. Air Malawi flies everyday from Harare to Blantyre but with a 45 minute stopover in Lusaka.

Important Advice-Yellow Fever Card: Make sure that you carry a yellow fever vaccination card or face problems with Mozambique and Malawi Immigration officials.

Business Opportunities: Small scale

1.Buses travelling to Malawi from Harare are usually full with clothing material

2. Buses travelling from Malawi to Zimbabwe have Kilombero Rice and goods imported from a Chinese warehouse in Limbe
