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.
