Tunduma is a border town between Tanzania and Zambia. It lies in Tanzania, in the Mbeya Region. It has border posts for both the Tanzam Highway and the TAZARA railway (for which it has a station) linking the two countries. It is located on the Tazara Corridor (also called the Dar es Salaam Corridor) which is a strategic artery linking southern Africa with east and central Africa. There is increasing traffic on this route from two directions: from South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia in the south, and from the Nacala Corridor in Malawi and Mozambique. The traffic is largely sugar, cement, fuel and machinery.

Best Safari tours from Tunduma

Often overlooked by many safari operators in favour of the northern parks, the southern parks of Nyerere National Park (formerly the Selous Game Reserve) and Ruaha National Park are worth serious consideration and are the preferred destination for most who are really keen on their safari. 

The benefits of heading to the south is that, where the very north of the Serengeti gives the numbers of game, along with some seclusion, the southern parks are still very much “frontier” parks and so are noticeably less busy (they also feature the same spread of species as the north, but more like a thousand, rather than 2 million). 

The second important point is that, where the average lodge cost in the north is around $700 per person per night, the lodges in the south, where they offer a similar experience, are around $2-300 less.
