We are delighted to announce the resumption of interstate passenger services between Tanzania and Zambia, which were suspended following the damage to the track caused by a freight train accident that occurred on 30 November 2022 at the Lumumwe-Mpanga section in Tanzania. 

The track has since been repaired.

Therefore, the Kilimanjaro and Mukuba Passenger Trains will both resume their normal cross-border journeys from Dar es Salaam and New Kaipri-Mposhi stations, respectively, on Tuesday 6th December 2022.
