Mzuzu Market PlaceMzuzu is the gateway to the Northern Region of Malawi and as such is considered the best base from which to explore the spectacular scenery of the Viphya and Nyika Plateaux,Vwaza Marsh as well as the Khondowe Plateau overlooking the Lake.

Mzuzu has a climate ideal for agriculture and the two most important crops produced on the slopes of surrounding mountains are coffee and rubber. With its high rainfall and many pine plantations Mzuzu is noted for its greenness throughout the year.

Khondowe Plateau, MalawiAs recently as the 1960's Mzuzu was difficult to reach, which explains why the north is not as developed as the rest of the country. However the situation is quite different today. The city is served by daily buses from most other major centres. a regular Air Malawi service and fine tarred roads which link Mzuzu with Lilongwe and Karonga in the north.

The northern road is in fact one of Malawi's most spectacular. Rising from the rich Henga Valley, which divides the Viphya Mountains from the Nyika Plateau and reaches a height of 1100m before winding down to the Lakeshore
