Welcome to Saadani National Park


While terrestrial wildlife-watching opportunities are modest, animals are definitely present. In addition to hippos and crocodiles, it’s quite likely that you’ll see giraffes, and elephant sightings are increasingly common. With luck, you may also see Lichtenstein’s hartebeests, and even lions, although these are more difficult to spot. Birding is very good.
