Saadani National Park
Saadani National Park was gazetted in 2003 and is the only park in Tanzania with ocean frontage. The park is unique to the rest of the East African combining a variety of ecosystems. Some of them include; bush, beach and the river. One can easily view some animals as they come down the beach.
The park has plentiful game including the giraffes, hartebeest, waterbuck, wildebeest, buffalos, hippos and the crocodiles. It’s possible but harder to see lions, leopards and the sable antelopes.
The game drives in the park are as rewarding as are boating safaris along the Wami River. At the river estuary, flamingos fill the salt pans; and the river is a birder’s paradise. To the north of the park is a green turtle breeding beach. This is currently supported by the lodges in the park
