Saadani National Park

Explore 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.

Highlights

  • A one-stop safari and beach destination
  • Witness a huge hippo and crocodile population basking on the sandbanks
  • Immersive boat safaris on the Wami River
  • Witness the rare sight of elephants playing on the beach
  • Visit the green turtle nesting site at Madete beach
