Saadani National Park
A unique park on the east coast of Tanzania, Saadani National Park is a great place to visit for a short safari if you're based in Dar es Salaam. We recommend combining it with the Nyerere and Ruaha to enjoy a classic southern circuit safari. While Saadani may not boast quite the same number of wildlife species as its neighbors, game viewing is still incredible with lion, leopard, giraffe, hippos, and waterbuck.
