From sun-kissed plains, evergreen jungles and an idyllic coastline absent from tourists, Saadani is a unique East African experience. When mapping out a ‘bush meets beach’ safari adventure, this national park should be top of your list.

Located a short 30-minute flight from either Dar es Salaam or Zanzibar, Saadani is the only national park in East Africa hugging the Indian Ocean coastline. If you have a keen eye, you can even spot, Zanzibar from afar.
