Where the bush meets the beach
About Simply Saadani Camp
Built on an old coconut plantation, Simply Saadaani camp can play tricks with the mind. On arrival, guests are led through a lush natural tunnel of overhanging trees with surround sound of the bush until suddenly, at the end of the tunnel, you are facing a stunning deserted white-sand beach and Indian ocean which is the last thing you’d expect to find at the end of the trail.
As the only coastal wildlife preserve in east Africa, there is nowhere quite like Saadani. With just nine beautiful rustic tented rooms, all with sea views and raised up high on large wooden platforms, it feels like you have been washed up on your very own desert island. From the cheeky Vervet monkeys on the balconies to the cute wide-eyed bush babies who visit the bar at night, to the stunning variety of bird life, it’s a tranquil, unique and beautiful place.
As well as game drives and boat safaris arranged from the camp, the camp has its own wildlife research centre where elephant and green turtle lectures take place as well as short canoe safaris and nature trails. The nearby turtle sanctuary which that camp supports is also another wonderful element to this little gem of a place.

As well as traditional game drives in 4x4’s, Saadani also offers the chance to head out on foot and also by boat which the more famous parks of the north, like Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater don’t allow. The variety of safari on offer makes this a great Tanzania safari holiday option. All of the below safaris can be done from the camp with the camp’s own vehicles and safari guides so if you have booked just full board rather than game package, you can book a safari and pay on the ground. Take a look what’s on offer.
For days when you are not in the park on safari, kick back and enjoy a good book on your terrace overlooking the beautiful warm Indian ocean, play on the beach, swim in the sea or indulge in the many activities offered in and around the camp, all complimentary to our guests. Sadaani has so much more to offer and is truly a one stop Tanzania safari and beach holiday.
