Saadani National Park Day Trip Dar es Salaam Safari is a wildlife day excursion to Saadani – the closest reserve to Dar es Salaam (302 km’s away). This day tour offers an irresistible combination of beach and wildlife viewing.
Saadani National Park is located almost directly opposite Zanzibar Stone Town (42 km’s away). Flights from Zanzibar to Saadani take just 15 minutes.
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, baboon, monkey and elephant amongst others.
