Just do a search and it will bring up several posts including this one.

Just remember that timetables are merely books but they are a reasonable guide to what may happen.

Hi, no I am sorry I did not find any timetable on the web.

At the time I was there they departed from Kigoma twice a month, your best change is to call a decent hotel over there that might have that info for you.!

good luck!

Hi!

Woops, is it still only going every second week. We are going from Mpulungu in Zambia til Kigomo friday Jan 9th to sunday jan 11th and was expecting to use the ferry. Is it going those days? Can we continue to Bujumbura? Is there a connection with a ferry going there?

And also back to Mpulungu: There is two possibilities: WEdnesday the 21 or wednesday the 28th from Kigomo to Mpulungu.

Hope we can find a ferry those days. We also heard it was an anniversary in 2015 and that Denmark will provide a new ferry in June of 2015. Is that true?

Thanks a lot for your information

Did you have any success in finding the schedule for the ferry from Mpulungu in Zambia to Kigomo

We are traveling in June and want to use the ferry.

Also did you travel in Burundi - what was it like.
