Thirsty to have a feel of the hospitality of Mwanza people? Modern Coast Express Limited offers you a solution through the newly opened route from Nairobi to Mwanza. This initiative justifies the company’s dream of joining East Africa to facilitate trade, leisure and adventure. The new route saves business people and others the fatigue that is associated with other modes of transport like the use of ferries. Traditionally, merchants and tourists accessed this part of Tanzania from Port Bell by lake, others with above average economic status would take advantage of air connections route via Nairobi or Kigali. Modern Coast has offered to bridge the gap between members of different social strata through the launch of the new route from Nairobi to Mwanza. At a pocket friendly fare of Ksh 2,000 for Business Class Seats, Ksh. 2,200 for First Class Seats and Ksh. 2,400 for VIP seats; everyone gets an opportunity to feel this adventure and travel in style.

It is undoubted that Mwanza is a preferred destination for many business people and tourists. The city has proved to have an exotic ring attached to its name and appreciated by many, East Africans inclusive. It is not surprising that some would mistake the city to be placed elsewhere, perhaps outside Tanzania. Fortunately, Drivers of Modern Coast Express, as with pilots of airlines flying into the city are well informed of their bearings and are determined to safely deliver passengers to the Tanzanian shores of Lake Victoria and to Mwanza; the city that is currently acknowledged as the growing springboard for tourists. With a keen consideration taken to ensure passengers’ comfort and satisfaction, Modern Coast Express responds to the intent to explore the lake islands besides the famous Serengeti.

The main economic activities in Mwanza are aligned to the fishing and processing industry that is arguably the largest fish market in the entire Eastern and Central Africa. Mining is also practiced in the wider region that surrounds Mwanza where with the launch of the new route coupled with the presence of the airport, a key link to the outside world has been achieved. Mwanza is also a great transport transit point for the railway that connects the Indian Ocean port of Dares Salaam through Mwanza by rail ferry to Port Bell outside Kampala. In the past, the lake zone expressed dissatisfaction due to failure to get a fair share of attention by Tanzania’s tourism marketers. This is not withstanding the world class tourist attractions that meet one’s eyes within hours of landing in the City.

Maximize the leisure in adventure by taking advantage of the advanced road transport thanks to Modern Coast Express. Get an opportunity to have a view of the Bismarck Rocks; a sight that is closely associated with Mwanza and which has turned out as a feature of the city and found off shore in the lake. The rocks were named after the famous German Chancellor in the days before the emergence of the World Wars. The Chancellor served at a time when the Berlin Conference; that lead to the division of Africa and Africans into colonial possessions; created boundaries that have triggered disputes among modern African countries to date. Most African tribes that lived on the lake shores for time immemorial attribute a lot of myth and history to the rocks as the area was proven to be the cradle of mankind from which the modern man evolved.

  16. 1 Does anyone know if the Nairobi to Mwanza bus stops at Musoma or Mkutano Junction (8 miles from Musoma) ? It does not seem to be listed although I know that is the route

    2 Are the buses AV

    3 Are there toilets on the bus

    • Modern Coast Express

      Dear Manjul, thank you for writing to us, please note, the bus does note stop on either of the mentioned towns, it goes direct to Mwanza. The buses some of our buses to Mwanza have air conditioning, and those that don’t have have windows, or a compartment that is usually opened for fresh air into the bus. Please note, our buses do not have toilets on the bus. Thank you.

      • Could you please double check the road from Sirare border passes through the outskirts of Musoma (called Mkutano or Ground 0). There is no other way! Or are you saying it will not stop there although it passes through there. This will be very odd as Musoma is a big town with population over 100,000. You are missing out on business. Many overseas visitors like myself go to Musoma for charity projects.

        • Hi Manjul, thank you for writing to us, we appreciate the feedback and will share with the manager in charge for consideration. Thank you.
