Great wildlife of Tanzania - Two day Safari tour from Zanzibar
already booked your Zanzibar beach holiday?
Is your main love the beach but you don’t want to travel all the way to
Tanzania and not do a few days safari? Then
why not add a few days on safari in Saadani National Park, just a 20-minute
flight across the Zanzibar channel to mainland Tanzania and the Swahili coast. This super diverse park at just 1100 square
kilometres is home to giraffe, zebra, lion prides, leopard, buffalo and large
elephant herds. Whilst there are not the big numbers of game, there is a great
range of wildlife and what Saadani also offers is a chance to do a boat safari
on the Wami river amongst large hippo pods and crocs, something the more famous
parks of the north like Serengeti don’t offer.
There is also the Madete marine park which protects green turtles along
this coastline and forms part of the national park protected by TANAPA
(Tanzania National Parks Authority). This is a whistle-stop tour of 2 days 1
night safari to give you a flavour of what Tanzania’s national parks can offer
– maybe come back another time and book a longer safari or Kili climb!
Game drive & boat safari
You’ll fly from Zanzibar’s domestic terminal. The
morning schedule flight takes just 20 minutes to reach Saadani National Park. East Africa’s only coastal wildlife
On arrival, head straight to the Wami river for a fabulous boat safari. Enjoy your packed lunch amongst the hippos before a game drive through the park arriving just before dark at Simply Saadani, a lovely safari camp that sits beautifully within its natural environment. Settle into your room before drinks and dinner.
Saadani national park safari
Awake before dawn and after a quick cup of tea or coffee, head out into the park on game drive to catch any early morning predators. The best time to see wildlife is early morning or late afternoon, the cooler times of the day. Return to the camp for brunch and after a little relaxation, jump in the game drive car and head to the airstrip for your afternoon flight back to Zanzibar.
