Saadani Safari Lodge
Saadani Safari Lodge offers a safari on the beach. It is located on the southern border of Tanzania’s Saadani National Park, where the Wami River enters the warm Indian Ocean. Stay in rustic thatched suites which are backed by the African bush and overlook the ocean. It's an ideal add-on to a Tanzanian safari. It will slow the pace somewhat, offering gentle game viewing on drives and river boats, combined with a tranquil beach setting.
There are 9 eco-friendly classic banda rooms, stretching along the sandy beach and offering magnificent ocean views from the day beds on the full-length veranda. There you can even request to have made up for the night for sleeping under the stars. The 5 maridadi suites have an additional outdoor shower and sitting room and are perched on stilts directly on the beach. All the rooms feature locally carved furniture made from coconut and driftwood. They are simple but elegant with grass roofs, wooden floors, and Zanzibari-style beds. The lodge’s main area has beach views and is perched on stilts with a bar and restaurant. There’s also a quirky boat bar, an infinity swimming pool, and a yoga deck. The camp has a laid back and sociable atmosphere particularly in the evenings when you will join other guests for drinks around the campfire to admire the sunset. When you are not out on a game drive, you can go swimming or snorkelling in the ocean, take a walking tour to the local village or enjoy a boat trip along the Wami river to see pods of hippo and basking crocodiles. It’s very much a barefoot paradise in a truly secluded setting.
