Saadani National Park

Saadani is one of the few coastal national parks in Africa. It combines bush and beach together with excellent birdwatching opportunities. The Wami river is superb for boat safaris and numerous hippo and crocodiles may be seen.

  • Big game:variable
  • Birding: Excellent
  • Best time to visit Saadani: June - September
  • How to get to Saadani: you can drive or fly to Tanga.
  • Safari types available: Boat safaris, Game drive, Walking Safaris

Game viewing in Saadani is variable. It can be excellent with elephants on the beach and lions by the river or you can drive for a while just seeing waterbuck and warthogs. In our experience spending two nights in Saadani is the best option.

Saadani is a good linking destination if you are visiting both North and South Tanzania. It combines well with Usambara and Mikumi

  • All the Parks visited are really wonderful, especially Ruaha and the "king" Katavi that worth absolutely the long trip (at least in our point of view). Yahaya and Salim are like two friends.
