The National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ) is a designated corporate body in terms of a Zimbabwean Act of Parliament. It is wholly owned by the Government of Zimbabwe and as such operates in accordance with the public sector rules and regulations, as amended from time to time. It was established to provide, operate and maintain an efficient system of public transportation of goods and passengers by rail.
The NRZ operates a rail network stretching 2760 route kilometres of 1067mm gauge track. It sits at the centre of the southern African Region and interfaces with contiguous railways on export/import route entries at Mutare/Machipanda for Beira, Sango/Chicualacuala for Maputo, Beitbridge for South Africa, Plumtree for Botswana and Victoria Falls for Zambia. The NRZ’s central position in the southern African Region makes it the ‘hub and gateway of the region’.
