Getting There & Away

The football-pitch-sized bus station is packed with buses, travellers and touts from dawn to dusk. If travelling from Babati to Arusha (Tsh9000, four hours), the first departures in both directions are at 5.30am and the last leave at 4pm, though dalla-dallas go until 6pm. Other destinations include Dodoma (Tsh12,000, four hours), Kondoa (Tsh8500, three hours), Mwanza (Tsh29,000 to Tsh36,000, eight hours) and Singida (Tsh9000, three hours; last departure from Babati around 10am). The Shabiby 'full luxury' buses serving these routes cost Tsh5000 to Tsh10,000 more than the prices quoted, but are well worth it for increased comfort and safety.
