Get to Know Saadani

Though it’s better known for its biodiversity than for Big Five game viewing, Saadani is the last place in East Africa where lions and elephants still roam the beach.

Gazetted as a national park in 2006, the former Saadani Game Reserve was until recently one of the most obscure, heavily poached and undeveloped conservation areas in East Africa. The 1,062-square-kilometre park is still quite obscure, but the creation of several small beachfront tented camps and improved anti-poaching measures have led to its emergence as genuinely worthwhile, albeit low-key, safari destination.

Despite the presence of lion and leopard as well as reasonably regular sightings of buffalo and elephants, it cannot really be billed as a classic Big Five destination. However, Saadani is probably the best place in Tanzania to see greater kudu, sable antelope and red duiker, while giraffe, warthog, yellow baboon and various other antelope are also common.

FAQs about Saadani National Park

  • January and February and from June to August after the rains. The wildlife stays within the park since there is still plenty of water - making it easier to spot the animals as well as the migratory birds are present.
