How To Get To Mpulungu

by Michael Abrams
(Cape Town)



Hi,

I am about to do a road trip to Kampala via Mpulungu.

I will be taking the train from Livingstone to Kapiri Mponshi. My question is - What public transport exists to get me from Kapiri Mponshi to Mpulungu?

Thanks,

Mike Abrams

Tazara Train

I don't know the dates for your travel, but Livingstone to anywhere by train on Zambia Ralways is not for those on a tight schedule.

On the other hand you can get from Kapiri To Kasama by the twice weekly Tazara train which goes through to Dar. Then you must get a bus from Kasama to Mpulungu.

I met a Mike Abrams recently in Kleinmond...are you the one?

How To Get To Mpulungu

Hi Mike,

There are plenty of buses going to Mpulungu. Since you want to connect from Kampiri mponshi, then you will have the opportunity to board buses coming from Lusaka.

The buses going to Mpulungu start from Lusaka, around 5:00hrs to 6:00hrs. So you should be able to board one around 7:00hrs in the morning at Kapiri (as it is usually known)

Kampirimposhi is not a loading station, since its a small town; therefore buses from Lusaka are usually full.

The best approach would have been starting from Lusaka, the starting point. However, buses prying the route to Mpulungu include, Jemins, Jodaan, Chibangamoto, Power II, CV bus and many more.

Indeed, traveling to Mpulungu is an adventure in itself. You will use the great North road via Mpika and Kasama.

I hope I have answered your question.

All the best,

Peter.
