In an online document the government says funds have been set aside for a paved (bitumin) road between the towns of Natta, Mugumu, and Loliondo.  The map shows the first phase, which goes up to Tabora B Gate at the park boundary. The next phase would extend this highway across the park to Loliondo, then presumably continue south.
