    Tanzania is well served by two rail networks - the Tanzania Railways Limited (TRL) which runs passenger and goods services along the Central Line between Dar Es Salaam and terminal stations on both Lake Victoria (Mwanza) and Lake Tanganyika (Kigoma). The second rail network is the Tanzania Zambia Railway Authority (TAZARA).

    This railway runs Southwest from Dar Es Salaam for a distance of 1,800 km through the world's largest and famous Selous Game Reserve and the mineral rich Southern Highlands. It then cuts across the border with Zambia and continues to New Kapiri Mposhi where it is well connected to the Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia itself, Zimbabwe and South African Railway networks.

  3. By Road

    The road network plays an important role in the socio-economic development of the country. Over 90% of passenger traffic and 80% of internal freight is carried by roads.

  4. By Sea/ Lakes

    Tanzania has four major ports: Dar Es Salaam, Tanga, Mtwara and Zanzibar. These ports are well equipped and form a very important gateway link to the world and to the land-locked countries of Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia and Malawi.
