I want to travel from Dar to Mwanza by train, is it possible these days? Because many guide books say that the track between Dar and Dodoma is supposed to be closed.
Greetings from Zanzibar,
I apologize for the delay in responding your email about Train from Dar es Salaam to Mwanza, to any of the inconveniences we may have caused towards you plan of visiting Mwanza please bare with us.
The truth of the matter is, train is still under construction, some serious technical issues are taking place to let it be back to normal again.
Due to heavy rains around the country which caused damage of railway, the authority (Tanzania Railways Cooperation) in coordination with other stakeholders are working hard to get solution with this problem.
Information from the right source are saying, at the mid April 2010 the train will start working again with the same time table though there might be slightly changes to be informed.
I would advise you either take a plane from Dar es Salaam to Mwanza, or a Bus ticket from same route.
Keep us posted in your plans as we are ready to help in booking and necessary information.
Once again sorry for the delay, but you are welcome to Mwanza 'The City of Lake Victoria'.
