VISIT SAADANI NATIONAL PARK
Saadani is the only coastal national park in East Africa, which not only means relaxing on Indian Ocean beaches after each safari, but also provides an opportunity to observe Africa’s big game and bird life interacting with the sea. Bottled-nosed dolphins are common off the Southern coast of the reserve, whales pass through the Zanzibar channel in October and November, and there is a green turtle breeding beach at Madete in the North.
Saadani is the latest national park to be added to Tanzania’s already impressive portfolio and has the unique distinction of being East Africa’s only coastal wildlife reserve, offering the chance to see big game and bird life interacting with the sea. It is located 130kms north of Dar es Salaam, between Bagamoyo and Pangani, and 27kms from Zanzibar, Saadani is the closest wildlife reserve geographically to both tourist centers.
Saadani is unique and undoubtedly will become yet another major attraction in Tanzania’s outstanding collection of natural wonders. With a controlled management of resources, improved infrastructure, protection of the wildlife and increased promotion, the future for Saadani National Park is looking positive.
