Kyela in detail

Flights & getting there

Minibuses go several times daily from Kyela to Tukuyu (Tsh2500, 1½ hours) and Mbeya (Tsh5000, two to 2½ hours) from the minibus stand in the town centre immediately south of Sativa's Midland Hotel, many stopping also at the Malawi border. Pick-ups run daily between Kyela and Itungi port (Tsh500) in rough coordination with boat arrivals and departures.

For updated information on the sailing schedules for the ferries, either call or ask at your accommodation place.
