Saadani park is not very populated: it is hard to spot lions and zebras for example. It is interesting because it is located on the coast: there are bushes, a river and the Ocean as well. Due to our lack of experience and to the lack of information from the tour operator we have chosen, this safari was very badly organized: I think that even if Saadani is a small park, there is no point to go there for less than 3 days. You have to take into consideration several elements that could overturn the original plan: for these reasons you need to take some time to enjoy the wild nature, have time for a walk and so on.

Not so many large mammals here. The scenery and Indian Ocean are ok but not great. Probably the only reason to go is for convenience from Dar.

It was very hot here, but the scenery differed from other parks and was worth it! This coastal park didn't have as much wildlife as other parks, but we saw lions, cheetahs and many others.

Saadani is definitely beautiful and tropical. There is wildlife, but it's not as abundant as the other parks. You won't see it constantly. The best part of Saadani was the safari lodge. The Indian ocean was beautiful.

Fabulous accommodations right on the Indian Ocean! The safari outing weren't as exciting as some of the other parks, but the accommodations couldn't be beat! Also, the giraffe on the airport runway added excitement! The river safari to see the hippos and birds was excellent.

Beautiful Park, with an amazing diversity, but wildlife often difficult to encounter. Can be in one spot of the park and difficult to locate. Good guide is thus necessary.
