Tanzania is filled with incredible parks and places to visit. Not only does the country feature some of the most gorgeous scenery in the world, but it is also home to some of the most unique species of wildlife. A safari in Tanzania is an amazing experience filled with adventure, and one of the best places to visit is Saadani National Park.
This park has been protected as a game reserve since the 1960’s. Until the 1990’s, however, there was a significant amount of illegal hunting that occurred in the park. The poaching was reduced when the adjacent villages joined in the conservation effort. It is now one of the best places to view Tanzania’s famous wildlife.
Saadani National Park is the only wildlife sanctuary in Tanzania to feature coastline on the Indian Ocean. This makes it an ideal place to not only view amazing animals in their natural habitat but to also enjoy some relaxing time on the beach. Imagine soaking up some sun on a pristine white sand beach and enjoying the sight of an elephant or lion coming to drink.
Taking a safari to Saadani National Park is one of the best way to see large herds of elephants in their natural habitat. Herds of up to thirty elephants are spotted more and more commonly. Watching the intricate communications of their matriarchal societies is an exciting and fascinating endeavor, so make sure that you have a camera ready to capture every moment!
In addition to elephants, many other grazers occupy Saadani. Giraffe, buffalo, warthog, waterbuck, wildebeest, greater kudu, and baboons are commonly seen on game drives and walks through the park. The herbivores attract carnivores such as prides of lions, leopards, hyenas, and jackals.
Enjoy seeing incredible wildlife in Saadani National Park. In addition to seeing animals and incredible scenery, you can sit back and relax on white sandy beaches with swaying palm fronds. Saadani is truly a unique safari experience.
