Road accident claims one life, injures one more in Messica

An  accident that occurred this Sunday on the bridge over the Revue River in the administrative post of Messica, in the district of Manica, province of the same name, left one person dead and another gravely wounded. Accident involved a large truck that, in addition to running over the two persons, collided head-on with a light vehicle belonging to the delegation of the interior minister, Arsénia Massingue, who had just finished a working visit to the Manica province. Mário Arnaça, the director of public relations of the PRM's provincial headquarters in Manica, blames the accident on erroneous overtaking. The crash caused both vehicles to sustain significant material damage in addition to the fatalities.

Lake Niassa

 Off the beaten track, lake Niassa (Nyasa), the Mozambican side of Lake Malawi boasts a phenomenally beautiful and unspoiled countryside and shoreline well worth exploring if you have the time and patience. 

Lake Niassa is the third largest lake in Africa – 100 km across and 585 km long, and much of it is surrounded by the imposing Rift Valley Mountains. This great lake's tropical waters are reportedly the habitat of more species of fish than those of any other body of freshwater on Earth, including more than 1000 species of cichlids. 

Lake Niassa was officially declared a reserve by the Government of Mozambique in 2011 in an effort to protect one of the largest and bio-diverse freshwater lakes in the world Niassa is located to the west in the northern province of Niassa and forms part of the border between Malawi and Mozambique. LAM offers regular flights from Maputo, Beira and Nampula to Lichinga airport (VXC). 

From Lichinga public transport can be used to visit certain areas on the lake but for more remote destinations you will require your own vehicle or a private transfer.
