Mbeya – Dar es Salaam: 24 hour train

We made it to Dar es Salaam on the 24 hour train!

As expected the real time of the journey turned out to be a little longer (by about 9 hours!) but with our own sleeper compartment, access to a “dining cart” and amazing views it was quite an enjoyable voyage.

Scenery ranged from tropical wetlands to savanna land to armies of waving children.  More photos to come as unfortunately super slow internet has hit the cybercafe so they will have to wait for another day!

We were very happy to finally arrive in Dar and spent a while recovering before starting to plan the last stages of our journey.

There was also time for a spot of street wandering and food indulgence which again shall be backed up with photographic evidence very soon!
