Tanzania: Tourist Train Station in the Pipeline

Sumbawanga — In a bid to boost the country's revenue through tourism, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism envisages to construct a special train station and visitor information centre projects.

The ministry works in partnership with the Tanzania Wildlife Management (TAWA), as well the Ministry of Works through the Tanzania Zambia Railways (TAZARA). Both structures will be established at Selous Forest Reserve at Matambwe in the Northern Zone.
