I plan to rent a car Pemba and to go to Lichinga (final destination Lake Niassa). I saw you dit it few years ago. Do you remember how many hours does it take ? Is the road nice ?
Actually I've got a reservation to spend few days in Lake Niassa (from August 17th to August 21th) et I don't know how to go from Pemba to Lichinga. No more commercial flights and I do not find private plan with reasonnable prices to go there et go back to Pemba.
Do you have any idea ?
Thanks a lot.

there are now roadworks on the previously very slow track between Montepuez and Marrupa. This used to take 8hrs, but now perhaps a lot less? So Pemba to Lichinga is about 18hrs, perhaps less if there is good progress on the Montepuez - Balama - Marrupa road. Marrupa to Lichinga is tarmac.
Your other problem is that rental vehicles usually only offer round-trip that means you cannot drop off your vehicle other than where you collected it.
Imperial did allow us to collect a 4x4 in Pemba and drop off in Lichinga but they charged a lot of money to collect the vehicle.
