How to buy tickets…

You can (in theory) book online at booking.trc.co.tz.  I have not yet had any feedback on whether this works and accepts overseas credit cards, but give it a go.  Remember that booking will open probably be days or weeks ahead, not months.  Alternatively, buy at the station or find a local travel agency.
