Kigoma -4.882409, 29.661505

Tanzania Buses Arusha, Dar es Salaam, Mbeya, Iringa, Mwanza, Moshi, Tanga, Nairobi, Mombasa, Kampala daily.

The bus is a great way to get into Tanzania.

Fly to a place like Nairobi, then you can catch a bus down to Arusha a great base for Mount Meru and Ngorongoro Crater.

Also, you should not forget the south central part of Tanzania, away from tourist hawkers.

Roads in Tanzania aren’t in good condition; there are no highways, and there are very few multiple lane segments along main roads.

Tanzania Buses slow down or stop in most villages because of traffic, police, and speed calming tools.

For your reference, the trip from Dar to Iringa takes at least 6 hours in a private vehicle.

It’s mostly a two-lane road, recently rebuilt by the Chinese, so it’s in good condition for the most part.

Westbound and northbound buses leaving from Dar ply the same road (A7) until you get to Chalinze, which is about halfway, less than two hours, between Dar and Morogoro.

If you are going to Arusha, the bus will veer north on the A17.

Other notable destinations along this route are Saandani National Park, Pangani, Tanga, Lushoto, Kilimanjaro, and Moshi.

From Arusha, you can also take a bus to Mwanza and Kigoma, but once you’ve past the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the roads are in extremely poor condition, and you are in for a bumpy ride.

If you continue on past Chalinze you’ll pass by Morogoro (also the turn off for Dodoma), the entry point into the Selous Game Reserve, Mikumi National Park, the old main gate to Udzungwa Mountains Parks, and Iringa, which is the turn off for Ruaha National Park.

Iringa is the place to explore the southern circuit, with a new campsite at the Msosa gate to the Uduzungwas (the Iringa side of the park) and the gateway to Ruaha (possibly Tanzania’s best park).

It is a great place to stay for a few days.

After Iringa, you’ll either go west, to Mbeya, or south, to Songea. Head to Mbeya if you want to either visit Lake Tanganyika, enter into Malawi, or head north to Kigoma.

North of Mbeya, the roads aren’t sealed, so it will be a long and very unpleasant trip.

If you want to see Lake Nyasa (a.k.a. Lake Malawi), take the bus to Songea.

Although you are within a stone’s throw of Mozambique, there are no official entry points into Mozambique.

Finally, if you’re headed south of Dar, then you’ll take the B2.

This is the main route to the Selous and the Rufiji River.

Along the way, you can also stop in Kilwa, Lindi, and, finally, Mtwara. The road isn’t sealed the whole way, so, again, bring on a cushion.

Outside Dar, roads between other cities and villages are in very poor condition, although they are slowly being improved.

For instance, traveling from Arusha to Dodoma is slow.

It can be faster to return to Chalinze and then board a bus to Dodoma.

This is pretty much the case for any travel between cities that are not located along the road to Dar.

The border town of Namanga is a hectic outpost that epitomizes much of Africa.

The bus even waits here for you to cross the border.

You can even get off on the Kenyan side, walk across the border, and get on the bus again on the Tanzanian side.

From Dar by bus it is also possible to travel to Malawi, Uganda, and Rwanda.

See specific cities for more information about the bus lines that serve them.

Tahmeed Buses connect Mombasa with Tanga and Dar in Tanzania.

Royal Coach travels to Arusha, and is one of the nicest buses available.

Dar Express services many cities, including Nairobi, Kenya.

Sumry connect the beautiful southern part of Tanzania, Iringa and Mbeya to Dar and further S.W.

To and From Kenya: There are several bus services available between Tanzania and Kenya.

Buses regularly go from Mombasa to Dar es Salaam (12 hours), Nairobi to Dar es Salaam (about 13 hours), Nairobi to Arusha (5 hours), and Voi to Moshi.

Some bus companies originating in Arusha will drop you off at your hotel in Nairobi and also offer pick-ups at Nairobi’s international airport.

To and From Malawi: The border crossing between Tanzania and Malawi is at the Songwe River Bridge.

Direct buses between Dar es Salaam and Lilongwe depart several times a week and take around 27 hours.

Your other alternative is to get to the border crossing and take minibuses in either direction to the closest towns — Karonga in Malawi and Mbeya in Tanzania.

Spend the night and then continue on the next day. Both towns have regular long-distance bus services.

To and From Mozambique: The main border post is at Kilambo (Tanzania) which you can get to via minibus from Mtwara.

To cross the border requires a trip across the Ruvuma River and depending on the tides and the season, this could be a simple quick canoe trip or an hour long ferry ride. The border post in Mozambique is at Namiranga.

To and From Uganda: Daily buses travel from Kampala to Dar es Salaam (via Nairobi — so make sure you get a visa for Kenya to transit).

The bus trip takes at least 25 hours.

A more manageable crossing is from Kampala to Bukoba (on the shores of Lake Victoria) which gets you to Tanzania in about 7 hours.

You can also take a short 3 hour trip by bus from Bukoba (Tanzania) to the Ugandan border town of Masaka.

Scandinavian also runs buses from Moshi to Kampala (via nairobi).

To and From Rwanda: Regional coach services travels from Kigali to Dar es Salaam at least once a week, the trip takes about 36 hours and crosses into Uganda first.

Shorter trips between the Tanzania/Rwanda border at Rusumo Falls are possible but the security situation fluctuates so inquire locally in Benako (Rwanda) or Mwanza (Tanzania).

Buses also run at least once a day from Mwanza (it will take all day) to the border of Rwanda, and from there you can catch a minibus to Kigali.

Catching the bus from Mwanza means a ferry trip to start with so the schedule is fairly fixed.

To and From Zambia: Buses run a couple times a week between Dar es Salaam and Lusaka (about 30 hours) and between Mbeya and Lusaka (about 16 hours).

The border that is used most often is at Tunduma and you can get minibuses from Mbeya to Tunduma and then cross into Zambia and take public transport from there.
