A DAY TRIP TO 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 elephant on the beach than sunbathers. A wide range of grazing animals are commonly seen on game drives and walks through Saadani National Park. These include giraffe, buffalo, warthog, waterbuck, reedbuck, hartebeest, wildebeest, greater kudu, eland, sable, yellow baboon and vervet monkey along with herds of elephant and many other creatures of all sizes.

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.

OPTIONAL BIRD WATCHING AND BOAT SAFARI:If you choose to take a boat safari we’ll look out for birds as we drive towards the Wami River. The Wami empties into the Indian Ocean and its waters and swamplands are home to a large population of hippo, crocodile and water birds.

In the late afternoon or early evening we’ll start the drive back to Dar Es Salaam where we’ll drop you back at your hotel. It’s been a long, exciting day and you’ll have a lot of amazing stories to share.
