TAZARA to ease tourist route from Southern Tanzania
Built in early 1970s, Tanzania-Zambia Railway (TAZARA) line is set t promote southern routes in Tanzania where tourists pass through while entering main tourist destination centers in Southern Highland regions of Tanzania. Thos is evident as tourists have expressed their satisfaction with Tanzanian tourist attractions as Rovos Rail from South Africa increases its routes from three to five this year. Speaking in Dar es Salaam yesterday during the arrival of a tourist train from South Africa, the Tanzania and Zambia Railway Authority (TAZARA) Public Relations Officer, Ms Regina Tarimo, said the increase of routes is evidence that tourists are satisfied with Tanzanian services. “Our railway line is connected to Southern African countries, which is an opportunity for increased revenue as well as tourist attractions. This year, Rovos rail has brought tourists five times in the country compared to three times in the previous years.
