Saadani National Park, Tanzania
Like many destinations in Africa, Tanzania offers the perfect combination of beach and safari. You can enjoy both the fascinating Africa’s wildlife and beautiful relaxing beaches in one trip. There are many big national parks and unspoiled Indian Ocean beaches, as well as three Africa’s Great Lakes and the Kalambo water falls, the second highest water falls in Africa. However, we suggest that you go for an off-the-beaten-track experience by visiting this hidden gem “Saadani National Park“.
Saadani National Park covers an area of 1100 sq.km., and locates right on the Indian Ocean shores. It is the only wildlife sanctuary in Tanzania that locates near the sea. As the park was recently established in 2005, not many people know about it. With the salty environment, you can also experience the mangroves and the native baobab trees. Apart from that, there is a local tribe called Datooga, or Mangati in Swahili, living nearby.
What to do
- Relax on the quiet beach, or snorkel in the Indian Ocean to explore the sea creatures like sea stars, urchins, variety of fish, and sea turtles.
- Explore the wildlife in Saadani National Park. You might get up close and personal with giraffes, monkeys, antelopes, buffaloes, elephants, and even lions.
- Visit the Wami River, located in the south of the park. There, you might see hippopotamus as well as crocodiles.

We recommend Tembo Kijani Ecolodge, located 20 minute drive away from Saadani National Park.
