Saadani National Park is situated on the north coast of Tanzania, a place where the bush meets the ocean. It is easily accessible from Dar es Salaam or Zanzibar and it is the only wildlife reserve in East Africa with a beachfront on the Indian Ocean.
Saadani National Park is situated on the north coast of Tanzania, approximately 100km North West of Dar es Salaam. This is a place where the bush meets the ocean, the only wildlife sanctuary in East Africa bordering the sea with romantic palm trees, beautiful white sandy beaches and spectacular views of the blue waters of the Indian Ocean.
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.
