Saadani National Park

// Place to visit → Saadani National Park

Located only 130 km north of Dar es salaam and directly to the west of Zanzibar Island, Saadani is the only coastal wildlife sanctuary in East Africa, which not only means relaxing on Indian Ocean beaches after each safari, but provides the opportunity to observe Africa’s big game and birdlife interacting with the sea.

Gazetted a National Park in 2002, Saadani measuring about 1100 sq. km in size, has a diverse population of mammals and birds. Elephant, leopard, lion, buffalo, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, colobus monkey, hippo, crocodile and the rare Roosevelt sable can be seen here. Saadani offers a choice of a driving safari, nature walk, and boat safari on the Wami River.

The park is home to an amazingly wide variety of plains game and primates, in addition to general game. Boat trips on the Wami River offer exciting wildlife viewing as well as fantastic bird watching, while the beaches offer one of the last major green turtle breeding sites on mainland Tanzania. A site so typical of this area is the Swahili fishermen casting their nets with a magical African sunset in the background.

The reserve is a mere boat ride from the island of Zanzibar, which is a beach-goer's paradise. Saadani is wonderfully located between island relaxation and safari excitement.
