The official capital of Tanzania located strategically in the center of the country. As in reality it never turned out to be the capital city likewise it never reached the capacity to lure tourists. Dodoma is most probably the least visited city in Tanzania by tourists. Due to the extensive road network connecting to all the parts of the country, Dodoma is a potential stop over point for those traveling in Tanzania by road or to some extent by railway. You will most probably be just passing by in Dodoma while traveling in Tanzania.
Dodoma is linked to all the parts of Tanzania by an extensive network of good surfaced roads and railway. There is also an airport in Dodoma but nowadays it is mostly used by small private aircrafts.
