Mzuzu is Malawi's third most populous city, though it is better known to travellers as both the jumping-off point for Nkhata Bay and the first major conurbation encountered if entering Malawi from Tanzania. Note that there is a Visa ATM in Karonga (close to the Tanzanian border), but Mzuzu contains the most northerly Mastercard ATM in Malawi. Mzuzu is noticeably colder than the lakeside towns.
There is an airstrip in Mzuzu but it does not appear to be served by any scheduled airlines.
There are several AXA buses per day from Karonga to Mzuzu, taking about 4.5 hours and costing MK750 (July 2009). There are also several AXA buses per day from Mzuzu to Lilongwe, taking about 6.5 hours and costing MK1180 (July 2009).
There are many matatus (minibuses) from Nkhata Bay to Mzuzu each day, costing MK350 (July 2009) and taking about an hour. There is also an AXA bus leaving Mzuzu for Nkhata Bay at about 6:30AM, and one returning from Nkhata Bay at about 1PM, costing MK250 (July 2009).
The centre of Mzuzu is certainly small enough to traverse on foot.
There are a number of internet cafes in the town, all charging MK5 per minute (July 2009).
