Fantastic Zanzibar beach holiday with three day wildlife safari
the most romantic evocation on the planet, Zanzibar’s turquoise waters and
white sand beaches offer the quintessential tropical paradise. Few know about
its equally stunning neighbour, Saadani national park, a short hop by plane
across the Zanzibar channel to one of the least known secret wildlife parks
combining bush and beach off the beaten track. Saadani’s wild, deserted beaches
are home to baboons, breeding green turtles, and even the odd lion. Elephants
gather in significant numbers in the thick vegetation of Elephant Island,
before traversing the open salt flats into Saadani National Park. In
combination, these two destinations offer a magnificent blend of bush and beach
or the ultimate beach holiday with a safari twist. Stay in wonderful safari
chic accommodation in keeping with the natural surroundings of the park.
