Saadani national park is the Tanzania 13th among the national parks in the country, it is the first park in Tanzania that fronts onto an ocean where tourists can view animals basking along the Indian Ocean shores. The park ecosystem covers 1100 kilometers square, the majority of it is at the sea level although the highest point is 35metres and most elevations don’t go beyond 40metres. Saadani national park was once an game reserve in 1962 until when it was gazetted a national park in 2005.Saadani bills itself as one of the few spots in the country where visitors can enjoy the beach and at the same time watch wildlife, to the south of the park is the Wami River where you will enjoy spotting hippos, crocodiles, hundreds of different bird species including lesser flamingos, fish eagles, hamerkopes, bee-eaters and many other tropical bird species. Elephants, giraffes, zebras, warthogs, hartebeests, and all the usual suspects of game viewing in the other parks. You also stand the chance of capturing different types of waterbeests, the big eyed rondo galago and elusive sable antelopes during game drive or wild walks. Predator animals are harder to sight in this park but the park scenery beauty still makes it a place to never miss, a visit to historic town of Bagamoyo should be a strong consideration with sensational ruins and slave trade history abound.
