Mzuzu in detail

Money and Costs


Banks, including Standard Bank and the National Bank of Malawi, line the main road east of the market. Their ATMs accept foreign cards and you can change major currencies here. In the latter bank, head to till 2 (forex and bill payments) to withdraw your card limit in Malawian kwacha. If you’re going to Nkhata Bay or Karonga, both have banks with ATMs, but just in case stock up on cash in Mzuzu.
