Malawi | Taxi driversClaire Symmonds | 13 May 2010
Was in Lilongwe recently and just to say it definitely pays to 'hire' a taxi driver for the day to get around. If you're in the city - negotiate a price for the day rather than each trip and don't worry about wait time - the drivers are quite happy to wait as long as you want. They also come in handy for recommending some great local places to eat and helping with the bartering! The Malawians are very proud and more than happy to help - not everyone is always going to try and rip you off.
