Harare To Tete (Mozambique) Distance: 467km, Day 6


Totally relaxed and ready to continue our journey, we leave after a good breakfast. Today is the first border control of our adventure and we never know how much of an “African Experience” we will get.  This is an important arterial road serving Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Malawi so there will be many lorries.

Mozambique continues to be a politically torn country with the government group and the rebels periodically fighting each other in different areas of the country. Our one night in this country will be in the sprawling noisy metropolis of Tete which is the centre for their coal business. The Zambezi river runs through the middle of Tete and since our last visit they have completed another major bridge across it, as long queues would form.

Dinner in the hotel.

Ask a question:

“My first experience of the Moto Aventures way of running bike tours. Absolutely fantastic! I loved everything about it, the bikes, the scenery, the accommodation, the company and the weather. All of it combined with Su and John's knowledge and expertise made this one of the best trips I had ever been on. My initial fears about my lack of off-road experience were very quickly discarded when we began our relaxed and expertly guided tour. A superb tour for those like me whom have had little off road experience. I left Andorra with a new found passion for off-road riding and such admiration for Su and John that I immediately booked my next adventure with them to South Africa.” – Gordon
