Combine safari with coastal pleasures at Tanzania’s Saadani National Park
There is only one place in East Africa where you can combine the pleasures of the coast with a spot of safari and that is on holiday at the Saadani National Park. Here you can find a coastal wildlife sanctuary that offers you the rare combination of river, bush and sea. Saadani holidays offer you a unique safari experience, and we’ll ensure you make the most of it.
Tanzania's youngest national park, Saadani National Park, covers 1,150km2 of land, but it’s to the sky that your eyes should be trained. This is a bird-watcher’s paradise that lies just north of Dar es Salaam yet remains firmly off the main tourist path. At Saadani you will be free from the crowds and able to concentrate on what your safari is all about: the wildlife.
Your expert guide will know exactly the spots to take you to so that you can observe the abundant wildlife. You can take a boat from the open sea into the mouth of the Wami River to pass pods of hippo and watch crocodile basking seemingly lazily in the sun. You can explore the park’s epic sandy beaches by taking a sunset stroll alongside the Indian Ocean. You can travel out to the offshore sand island to find the perfect places for snorkelling or, swimming.
If you like the thought of combining relaxing on the coast with a walk on the wild side, then a Saadani holiday is most definitely for you.
