Can anyone suggest the best way to leave Zanzinar and reach Pemba ?

We are thinking to take a flight from Dar-Es-salem directly to Pemba, or even to Nampula but we'll like to answer if the option to goad by road (bus ?) will worth ?

And in Mozambique it is a good option travel by bus from Nampula to Pemba ?

It is best to fly from Dar-Es-salem to Pemba Mozambique.

Visa are cheaper to get at Dar but will have to wait a couple of days. Pemba airport offers visas immediately.

It is much more comfortable to travel by bus from Pemba to Nampula or Ilha da Mozambique because of the logistics.

Go on the website www.pembadivecamp.com click on “Getting There” this will offer you detailed information travelling around Northern Mozambique and Train ride from Nampula to Malawi.

Have a good trip.
