Car & Motorcycle or Boda Boda

Parking anywhere in the city centre costs Tsh1000 per day – an attendant with tickets is likely to be lurking not far from where you park.

For any serious safari, you’ll need a large 4WD (ie Toyota Landcruiser) with a pop-top roof for wildlife viewing. It’s worth shopping around, as quoted prices can vary significantly. Do your sums carefully, particularly in regard to included kilometres, as extra kilometres are charged steeply – between US$0.50 and US$1 per kilometre.

You can get smaller and cheaper RAV4-style 4WDs, but they’re not ideal for wildlife viewing, although they’re generally fine during the dry season. Expect to pay around US$600 per week with around 100km free per day.


Dalla-dalla & Taxi:

Dalla-dallas (minibuses; Tsh400) run along major roads from early until late; there’s a big dalla-dalla stand west of the stadium, off Stadium St. There are taxi stands all around the city centre, including on main Streets of Mbeya, and some park in front of most hotels, even many budget ones. A ride across town, from Mbeya City Center to neaby area (3), for example, shouldn’t cost more than Tsh5000. The usual asking price for both motorcycle taxis and bajajis (tuk-tuks) is Tsh2000 for a ride in the city centre.
