Where I stayed
Guesthouse without name
I already saw another white guy and after 4 hours we eventually met. Bram from Belgium, also traveling around for a few weeks. We got along fine and could talk our native language (Dutch and Flamish) so decided to stick together for a few days.
Tabora was once a major trading center on the railway line between Bagamoyo (the ocean) and Lake Tanganyika so many explorers and early slave traders made their way through this city
We stayed in a Guesthouse without a name and just walked around a bit through town. Objective was taking the train to Dodoma but it seemed it was full and there was no way to get on. So another busride to Dodoma was the result the next day.
- Trains from Tabora to Dodoma (or further) go on Friday and Monday. Be quick with booking your ticket because I was too late and the train was full.
