Tanzania’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism plans to construct a tourist train station and visitor information centre.

The Ministry will work in partnership with the Tanzania Wildlife Authority (TAWA) and the Ministry of Works through Tanzania Zambia Railways Authority (TAZARA). The train station and information centre will be established at Selous Forest Reserve at Matambwe in the Northern Zone.

TAWA communication officer, Twaha Twalibu, told the Daily News that the parties met in March last year and discussed the proposed expansion of Matambwe Halt station.

"The goal of expanding the Halt Station is to exploit the opportunities that the TAZARA line offers, in a bid to serve large numbers of tourists, and to promote local tourism by applying cheaper travel costs compared with other transportation options," said Twalibu.

They also aim to capitalise on opportunities linked to Rovos Rail (a luxury South African rail operator), promote tourism at international level and create opportunities for local business.
