Day Trip – Saadani National Park
Saadani National Park is truly unique because it’s right on the Indian Ocean. The beautiful white sand beaches are stunning but you’re more likely to see lions or elephants on the beach than sunbathers.

ARRIVAL AT SAADANI NATIONAL PARK FOR GAME DRIVE
Expect the unexpected is a good rule for your game drive in Saadani. You never know what you’ll see but your guide will be looking out for land animals like elephant, lion, giraffe, buffalo, zebra, waterbuck and sable antelope and birds like the African hornbill.
There’s a good chance of spotting hippo, crocodile and a selection of marine and riverine birds, including the mangrove kingfisher and lesser flamingo, on stretches of the Wami River, and although they’re usually only spotted at dawn or dusk, the beaches here are one of the last major green turtle breeding sites on mainland Tanzania.
LUNCH ON THE BEACH
You’ll enjoy a picnic lunch on the beach with its white sand and sparkling clear water. If you’re a romantic bring your loved one – it doesn’t get much better than this.
After lunch you’ll continue your game drive or you can take a boat safari if you wish.
