Train from Kapiri Mposhi to Dar-es-salaam

Question

Train from Kapiri Mposhi to Dar-es-salaam: Taking the train is a safe, pretty comfortable and above all, fascinating way to get around Tanzania, and to travel between Tanzania and Zambia.  This page explains routes, train times, fares and how to buy tickets.

The Tanzania & Zambia Railway Authority (TAZARA) runs trains between Kapiri Mposhi, Mbeya and Dar es Salaam, taking two nights.  The trains have sleeping-cars and a restaurant car, and the journey is a great adventure, see the travellers’ reports below.  The line is 1,860km long and was only opened in 1976, built with Chinese funding and assistance.

The timetable below comes into force on 1 June 2017.  The Zambian Mukuba now permanently operates the express service, the Tanzanian Kilimanjaro now always operates the ordinary train, before 2016 the two trainsets alternated on both services, so you never knew which set you’d get.
