Tazara passenger train services are on very high demand.

These factors imply that the passenger trains are usually fully booked, sometimes as much as four weeks before the travel date.

Therefore, it is important that you plan your journey with TAZARA long before your travel date.

Give it at least a month of advance planning.

Book your seat or sleeping berth at least four weeks in advance.

In terms of getting to the station where you intend to board from, it is advisable that you ensure that you get on the earliest bus that would deliver you to that station at least two hours before the indicated EDT.

Tazara Train Bookings Ticket Prices Fares Reservations Time Tables

Our experience is that many passengers make mistakes by using public buses that depart late or delay along the way and end up reaching the boarding station too late and find the train has already left.

This is the case for passengers connecting from Lusaka and the Copperbelt to New Kapiri-Mposhi.

It is also the case in Dar es Salaam where road traffic congestion’s are rife.

You have no control over public transport; neither does TAZARA have that control. Therefore, play it safe.

Look for the earliest and fastest means of transportation to get you to the boarding station.
